Moonlight Gourami (Trichogaster microlepis) 50mm-60mm

The common name moonlight gourami describes this peaceful labyrinth fish quite well.
Its body is silver-colored with a slightly greenish hue that is not unlike the soft glow of moonlight.
Like all labyrinth fish, Trichogaster microlepis has a special organ that allows it to breathe air directly.
Because of this labyrinth organ, it is not unusual to see it go to the surface to gulp air.
