These gouramis are native to Southeast Asia and are well-suited for community aquariums.

Ideal Water Conditions:

✦Temperature: Maintain the water temperature between 75°F and 82°F (24°C - 28°C) for optimal health and activity.
✦pH Level: Keep the pH level slightly acidic to neutral, ideally between 6.5 and 7.5.
✦Water Hardness: Balloon Pearl Gouramis prefer slightly soft to moderately hard water with a range of 5-15 dGH.
✦Ensure the tank has efficient filtration and perform regular water changes to maintain excellent water quality.

 Tank Mates:

✦Balloon Pearl Gouramis are peaceful and can be kept with other peaceful community fish.
✦Avoid housing them with aggressive or fin-nipping species that may stress or harm the gouramis.
✦Suitable tank mates include other gourami species, tetras, rasboras, small peaceful catfish, and non-aggressive cichlids.
✦Provide plenty of hiding spots and dense vegetation to create a secure environment for the gouramis.

  Feeding Habits:

✦Balloon Pearl Gouramis are omnivorous and have a varied diet.
✦Offer them a combination of high-quality tropical fish flakes, pellets, and live or frozen foods such as brine shrimp, bloodworms, and daphnia.
✦Supplement their diet with vegetable matter, such as blanched spinach or lettuce, to provide essential nutrients.
✦Feed them small portions multiple times a day, ensuring they consume the food within a few minutes.
✦Monitor their feeding habits and adjust the quantity accordingly to prevent overfeeding and maintain water quality.

 Care Requirements:

✦Provide a spacious aquarium with a minimum capacity of 30 gallons to accommodate the active swimming nature of the Balloon Pearl Gourami.
✦Decorate the tank with plants, driftwood, and rocks to create hiding spots and simulate their natural habitat.
✦Maintain excellent water quality through regular water changes (approximately 25% every 1-2 weeks) and efficient filtration.
✦Test the water parameters regularly to ensure they remain within the suitable range for the gouramis.
✦Monitor their behavior for signs of stress, disease, or aggression, and promptly address any issues that arise.
✦Provide moderate lighting in the tank, as Balloon Pearl Gouramis prefer subdued lighting conditions.
✦Handle them with care during maintenance, as they have delicate fins that can be easily damaged.
