General Characteristics and Characteristics of Gurami Fish

Gouramy has the characteristic that it is not "fussy" when it is cultivated, because this fish can live in various environmental conditions and water quality. If you pay attention, you often see gourami swimming to the surface of the water. This is because the gourami has a labyrinth-shaped second gill which functions to take oxygen directly from the air.

Gourami fish are classified as all-eaters. Generally, gouramis tend to choose the type of food according to their age. In the larval and seed phases, gourami eat microorganisms, such as phytoplankton, zooplankton, and aquatic insects.

While in the adult phase, gourami tend to prefer plants, such as azolla, water spinach, and genjer. However, in cultivation ponds, cultivators usually provide cassava leaves, papaya leaves, or pellets for optimal growth.

In addition, male carp has a unique habit, that is, before the female carp lays eggs, the male carp first makes a nest of palm fiber or dry plants in the pond to lay the eggs. After the egg-laying process is complete, the male parent will leave and the nest containing the eggs is guarded by the female parent.
