The Sparkling Gourami (Trichopsis pumila), also known as Pygmy Gourami, is a small freshwater fish native to the ponds, slow rivers and rice fields of Southeast Asia. It is a member of the Osphronemidae family and the Anabantiformes order.

These Gouramis are very small and usually live up to 5 years. However, in good aquarium conditions they may sometimes live longer.

They belong to the anabantiformes order – also known as labyrinth fish.

Fish in this group have a special labyrinth breathing organ that allows them to take in oxygen straight from the air, instead of the way most fish get oxygen which is dissolved in the surrounding water.
