Visual sexing is difficult, although females swell with spawn when in breeding condition. In the aquarium, these Gouramis dig for food in the substrate, and also browse on algae growing on rocks or the glass of the tank. They may even nibble at plants, specially if any of the more delicate species are growing in their tank.
