Sexing Dwarf Gourami

2 posts in this topic

First time keeping gourami. I read that males harass each other relentlessly. I think mine may all be male but they've barely showed any interest in each other. In fact, they swim around and enjoy each other's company. They are all 2"+ / 120 gal / medium planted tank / no other tank mates

Can anyone take a good guess at the gender?

Should I be worried about adding another gourami, be it male or female?

What about adding a couple of angelfish?

Those look like all males. Female are not near so colorful.  I tried finding females once a long while back. It can be hard to find stores that sell them.  Quite often if the tank is full of colorful fish it is all males. I am thinking your top photo is a powder blue male, your next photo is a normal regular colored male.  The last one is a flame.
