- I've had mine for nearly a year now. It was last summer when i bought them and they've grown really big. They're hardy fish, they've survived whitespot before. I love to watch them :-)

- I just recently received a 60 gallon tank as a gift. The first two fish that I bought were two kissing gourami's. One of them died about a week after we got him. After about another week went by and the other gourami was still living I decided I would get him some friends. I got 3 more kissing gourami's along with 2 tiger oscars, 2 convicts and two fire mouths. They all seem to keep to themselves for the most part. They each stick beside there own species and the only time they really show aggression is when I feed them.

- I have had my kissing for about 3 weeks now and she is a great contribution to my tropical tank. With the 3 lamp eye tetras, 5 zebra danios, 1 fantial molly, 1 black molly , 2mystery snailsand a 4 inch pleco, she is a wonderful addition to my 29 gallon tank

- We got our kisser from a friend who's tank cracked and had a slow leak... they had him for about 4 years, Puck has outlived all of his tank mates over the last 11-12 years with me. He's going on 16 now, shows a little cataract fog in his eyes, but swims and eats well. He is part of the family for sure... he will be missed when he goes.... I just might have to get another one, gonna miss those lips!!

- I bought my kissing gourami a few months ago because i wanted something big to go with my little guppies. The gourami killed all my guppies! I constantly wondered if I should kill the gourami as punishment or take a risk with adding other fish. I added two dalmatian mollies and my gourami attacked yet again, but this time I was ready to take him out, but I couldnt catch him! Eventually I gave up and accepted that my mollies may die, but for some reason after the chase incident my gourami became the nicest fish in my tank. Since then I have added two red wag platys, one unexpectedly gave birth and there is now an offspring that has actually become good friends with my gourami. I have gone from wanting to kill her to wanting her to live for years!

- I think my two actually kiss or are they fighting. Any ideas or help?

- I have just purchased 4 Kissing Gouramis, approx. 1-2inch length. Don’t know a lot about them, what’s best temp wise and ph parameters. They are in a 50ltr tank. I also have Discus, Parrots, Clown Loaches, and Yo Yo Loaches as I believe proper name. I have only recently put parrots in with Discus etc and they seem really happy, and have recently spawned which they do regularly. It’s a shame that these fish don’t come to anything after all their efforts, but I know that’s not possible.

Lifespan > 5 years
- I purchased 2 Kissing Gorami in the spring of 2005. They are both still alive and very active. In 2005 they were less than 1.5 inches in length, so fairly young.

- Our kissing gourami is in a tank by himself... When we have given him friends in the past he has eaten them... He is a super responsive fish & shows lots of emotion for a fish. We feed him 3 times a day

Gourami & Black Moor
- I have a kissing gourami & he keeps chasing my black moor around. Now the black moor just hides in the little ship. I think it's because he is scared. Any tips? I would appreciate it. Thank you!

My Kisser is 13.yo now
- He once even blew up like a golf ball and I thought he was a goner and left him for the night in a salted water icecream container as a last resort. He shrunk back down and still has a little excess skin under his tummy where it was stretched

- My pretty pink Kissy is 11 years old. She is not a terror, maybe because she has been with her same old friends, loachey and clown. They all have survied their other friends. I hope after reading the 21 and 22 year mark, my 3 fish will reach this. When someone has older fish, people dont realize they hear your entire life, see everything and if you listen you can understand their stress.
