Topics I've Started

Anyone For Chocolates? - Sphaerichthys Osphromenoides That Is.

29 September 2020 - 08:48 PM

'day everyone.

 

I just became a member and I like the old style forums over social media. So I thought I would share some home grown knowledge of one of my favourite fish - The chocolate gourami.

 

I say "home grown" because I had to throw out the books to see some success with chocolates.

 

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and as they say on the television; "here's one I prepared earlier."

Chocolates are not really all that difficult to keep, and if you get things right; they will breed successfully. At least they have for me as the pictures show.

However, the best form of success is when others are successful too.

 

So, this initial post is simply to wet the appetite of the PCSF resident choco-holics.

 

Part one will follow over the next few days - I think the best place to start is with water parameters and the aquarium itself. A home for chocolates.

 

Feel free to jump in and post, afterall; this is discussion forum.


Intro From The Bush

'day guys, just a quick into.

 

Licorice and chocolate gourami, along with a few wild Bettas are my primary interest. One of those people with too many tanks than they care to admit, along with excess fish from time to time.

 

I like the ol' fashioned forums over the social media; topics don't disappear within minutes and you can find them again.

 

Oh, and that pic is a male choco brooding eggs.
