Releasing the female, the male gathers eggs in the mouth, going down to the bottom and pop to the surface of the water, put the eggs in a foam nest. Procedure squeezing eggs from female body is a few times. As the devastation of all the reluctant female approaching spawning, the male becomes aggressive towards her. The female hides in her prepared for the sheaf of plants and the male when trying to females close to the nest, pushes her back into the bushes. Male after spawning is very jealous of the constructed nest and the female so be careful to remove from the spawning grounds. The eggs are kept well in the foam, but If for any reason, fall, falling to the bottom, the male immediately picks up and puts her back. The larvae hatch in 24-36 hours.

Yolk bubble dissolves in 2-3 days. For a more successful breeding male gourami leave to care for the nest until such time as newly hatched larvae begin to swim freely and spread out from the nest. Then gently clean and 'dad'. Nest without males gradually begins to disintegrate, but it is no longer necessary Floating gourami fry. Starter feed infusoria, and later small zooplankton. Become sexually mature fish to 8 -10 months.

For successful reproduction in the gourami spawning first place male and begin to slowly raise water temperature. (Source: Senator Brian Schatz ). The water in the spawning area should be a standing order to avoid destruction of nests. After raising the temperature to 28-29 with a male starts to build a foam nest in the midst of floating plants on the water surface.
