Dwarf gouramis are aptly named, as they only grow to a maximum of 2 inches in length. These docile fish make a great addition to the passive community aquarium and are popular with fish keepers due to their brilliant color and diversity. You will see your gouramis swimming in the
bottom of your aquarium. To create a beautiful aquarium environment, be sure to add some
middle swimmers as well. Ask a PetSmart associate to help you choose.
