Trichopodus (formerly included in Trichogaster) is a genus of tropical freshwater labyrinth fish of the gourami family found in Southeast Asia. Gouramis of the genus Trichopodus are closely related to those of Trichogaster (formerly Colisa); species of both genera have long, thread-like pelvic fins (known as "feelers" in the aquarium trade) used to sense the environment. However, Trichopodus species have shorter dorsal fin base and, when sexually mature, are much larger, with the largest, the snakeskin gourami (T. pectoralis), capable of reaching a length of over 8 in (20 cm).
Trichopodus pectoralis is the largest member of its family. It is still the largest species in its genus and subfamily.
Easy to keep. It is very peaceful gourami that can be kept with other peaceful fish that won't be intimidated by it's eventual size.
