Arol is the newest member in my freshwater aquarium. He is a Flame Dwarf Gourami. This type of Gourami is named for their brilliant red-orange color. Despite his bright colors he is quite shy and frequently hides in the aquatic plants I have in my tank. He seems to be getting along swimmingly with my other fish. Unlike my cichlids, tetras and cherry barbs Arol will come to the surface to feed, rather than wait for the food to sink in the water column. Welcome, Arol to your new freshwater community!
