 Hi  All,
 
 I  have  a  platinum  gourami.  One  of  my  friends  recently  visited  my  home  and  saw  my  aquarium,  when  he  saw  my  gourami,  he  told  that  it  is  giant  white  gourami.  I  bought  this  gourami  from  one  of  the  LFS  in  Bangalore  and  when  I  bought  this  fish,  the  LFS  guy  told  me  that  it  is  a  platinum  gourami.  I  have  attached  couple  of  pics  to  this  post,  could  some  one  tell  me  whether  it  is  giant  white  gourami  or  a  platinum  gourami.  It  is  not  very  aggressive  as  of  now.  At  times  it  chases  a  male  sail  fin  molly  and  a  white  skirt  tetra  but  its  a  very  quiet  fish.  I  did  lot  of  research  on  the  web  and  could  not  find  an  answer.  If  it  is  giant  white  then  I  might  have  to  move  it  to  a  bigger  tank.
 
 At  present  the  size  of  the  fish  is  around  3.5  inches  and  can  this  be  a  giant  white  gourami  and  if  so  what  would  be  the  approx.  size  it  can  grow  to?

 Definitely  not  s  giant  gourami.  The  face  is  different  for  giant  gourami  like  it's  smashed  and  it  has  a  small  hump  too.  My  LFS  guy  here  has  about  4-5  golden  giant  gourami  that  he  hasn't  sold  for  last  one  and  half  years.  No  one  buys  them  cos  they  are  huge  and  not  much  of  a  looker(IMO).

 It's  not  a  moon  light  Gourami.  It's  not  a  Gaint  Gourami.
 It's  a  selectively  bred  variant  I  think  and  you  bought  it  as  a  platinum  Gourami  so  be  it.

 That  one  looks  like  a  mod  of  Golden  gourami  version,  which  has  been  in  market  for  quite  sometime.
 Males  would  be  dark  yellow.
 
 The  platium  looks  like  V  0.2

 Agree  with  Sai  above,  looks  like  less  pigmented  version  of  Golden  Gourami.  However,  some  better  pictures  with  &  without  flash  will  help.  Their  females  have  such  shiny  platinum-lookalike  bellies.
