Gouramis are probably one of the coolest fish out there in terms of appearance in my opinion. They look like they're swimming upside-down because of the way their fins are shaped. Our 2 gouramis were also relatively well tempered. They didn't fight with each other much, which I know can be an issue with this breed. Beyond that, they were like most other fish in terms of care: you have to feed them and clean their tank and that's about it. The filter in the tank will make noise, and the light will have to be on, so if those things bother you, gouramis or most fish aren't for you. I quite liked our gouramis because they were easy enough to care for and fun to look at. Another thing of note is that gouramis have really beautiful coloring and there are a variety of looks within even each breed of gourami.
