I adopted a female gold gourami from a guy who needed to find her a good home.

In all honesty I wasn't exactly sure of the sex of the fish, if it was another male I would probably have to rehome it.

As soon as I added her to the tank it brought my male out of hiding and they spent about 15 minutes just touching and swirling with eachother.

Things are calm now but should I be really worried if they start to go into spawn mode? I don't know if their aggression gets really crazy or not, but ever since flag fish I've realized just how different a fish can get when babies are involved.

I hope to get pics soon.. It was very sweet to see their first meeting :3

I also got a lone long fin rosey barb who is currently hanging out with a school of odessa barbs. X)

Wouldn't worry about going into spawning mode with the other fish in the tank. It's possible but too many factors around that would tear up the bubblenest or allow eggs to be eaten. Males will chase females away after spawning.

Gourami pairs are usually safe to leave together, and it sounds like these two are getting on well. So I'd just keep an eye on things.

Since they're other fish in the tank I also expect that if any eggs to survive to the point of hatching, it's unlikely that any fry will make it.
