Just to let everyone know I don't have my Giant Gourami anymore. sad I sold him yesterday and even know that I wanted to keep him he was getting to big and I didn't have a proper tank for him.I'm fixing to get a 140g tomorrow and didn't want to put him in that tank because its going to be for my Frontosa's and Dolphins and some other African's and did not want him to kill anyone of them.I sold him to a guy down the street from me that has 225g that he put him in and said I could come see him anytime I wanted to.I know he is in good hands.This was my Giant Gourami!

At least that way you know where he went and can go see him. If you had taken him to a LFS, there is no telling where he would have wound up.

He's got to be happy swimmin' around in the 225.

If hes in a huge tank and you have visitation rights it sounds like it worked out well!
I know it sucks to let him go but you did the right thing!

I got a call from the guy yesterday and he asked my if I wanted to buy back the Giant Gourami because he is killing his 30" Silver Awrana and don't want that.So should I get him back?He said if I don't buy him back he would take him to the LFS and I don't want that.
