Just stuck the airstone in the bag. Do you think he'll be ok with 3 adult opaline gourami till I find a home for him?

Most are but not the Three Spot and its colour variants which include the Golden and the Opaline. The male Dwarfs can be quite bolshy also. IME Pearl Gouramis and Honeys are the most docile. Wink

Well, released it and it is upright so we'll see.

Oscars are a bit stunned though Sad I think clean cooler water is a new thing for them.
