I picked up a half dozen Opaline (blue) Gourami at the GHAC (thanks Nick) auction and they were looking so good that I put the darkest male and female in a half full 10g tank with a couple of IAL floating on the surface.
Today they have a huge bubble nest under one of the IAL.
They spawn just like bettas only the eggs float so I can remove both parents and I won;t have to jar all the little males. :lol:

I have a 10g tank full but the largest is only 3/8" at the present time.
I'm sure I'll have a bunch at the next HAS auction.
