Pink Kissing Gourami

The pink kissing gourami has large lips which it uses to spar with other fish for food and territory. When the gourami uses the mouth in such a fashion it appears to kiss. Males and females look the same, so everyone is kissing everyone in a school of these pretty fish. The kissing gourami will grow to eight inches in the aquarium so eventually the fish will need room. These are hardy pet fish and eat both veggies and meats, so a community pellet or flake food should suffice.
