 Both  are  females.  
 
 Conditioning  is  providing  High  protein  diet  to  the  pair  for  at  least  a  week  with  bloodworms  etc.

 dude  keep  both  of  them  together  in  a  10g  tank  if  they  are  dwarves  or  a  larger  tank  for  the  larger  gouramis.
 put  the  male  and  female  in  the  same  tank  and  feed  them  on  live  food  atleast  twice  a  day  until  their  guts  fill  up.
 tha  male  will  start  building  a  bubble  nest  in  one  corner  of  the  tank,floating  plants  or  leaves  will  be  incorporated  in  the  nest  building.
 once  the  female  is  ready  to  breed  she  will  touch  the  male  on  its  side  using  its  mouth  and  then  they  will  start  the  process  of  laying  eggs  by  embracing  each  other  and  the  male  will  collect  the  eggs  that  will  fall  down  and  place  them  inm  the  bubble  nest.
 each  spawn  can  produce  about  200-600  eggs  depending  on  the  conditioning  of  the  gouramis.  
 you  should  increase  the  temperature  to  28-30  while  breeding  and  also  keep  the  top  of  the  tank  covered  with  a  glass  leaving  only  some  space  about  one  inch  so  that  some  air  gets  in  the  tank  as  these  are  surface  breathers  and  the  glass  will  trap  a  layer  of  warm  air  and  prevent  the  eggs  from  spoiling.  
 also  dont  use  any  gravel  in  the  breeding  tank.
 u  can  also  add  a  dry  leave  of  teh  indian  palm  tree  to  condition  the  water  add  this  at  the  rate  of  one  leave  for  every  40  litres.

 1.Is  it  ok  if  i  use  a  plastic  container  instead  of  a  glass  tank?
 It  should  be  Ok  as  long  as  the  container  meets  the  basic  requirement  in  terms  of  size  etc  and  also  ensure  that  the  container  is  cycled.
 
 2.Is  it  ok  if  i  feed  freeze  dried  bloodworms  instead  of  live  food/
 Usually  Live  Foods  are  used  for  conditioning.Don't  think  dried  foods  will  work
 
 3.Should  i  add  male  in  female's  tank  or  vice  versa?
 It  is  advised  to  keep  male  &  female  in  same  tank  with  a  glass  partition.Once  you  see  signs  of  breeding  then  you  can  remove  the  divider.Similar  to  breeding  bettas  !

 1)yes  u  can  use  a  plastic  container.
 2)live  food  is  good  for  conditioning  than  dry  food.
 3)add  both  of  them  together  in  the  tank.
