This lovely little fish is very beautifully marked and is perfect for the peaceful planted or nano aquarium!

The Sparkling Dwarf Gourami (Trichopsis pumila) is a brilliantly colored, very small labyrinth fish. 

The Sparkling Dwarf Gourami requires an aquarium with dense vegetation and plenty of cover. A darker substrate will result in the most vivid coloration for this fish. Slow to moderate water movement is preferred, so turbulent conditions should be avoided. This fish is typically timid and peaceful with other fish, but males can be territorial with their own species. This is much less of an issue in larger aquariums. While it is possible to keep this fish with most peaceful invertebrates, it is also possible that it will go after dwarf shrimp, so vigilance and caution are necessary.

A balanced diet for the Sparkling Dwarf Gourami should consist of algae-based flakes, carnivorous flakes, and meaty frozen or freeze-dried foods. It is not a picky eater.
