There juvenile Pearl Gourami (sometimes called Lace Gourami), Trichogaster leeri, are a surface dwelling fish, as you can see here. Unfortunately, as with many store display tanks, this tank is quite a bit short on cover for these fish.

"Thanks for the help, stopped using ammonia remover and bacteria booster and the tanks have now stabilized. [I] read your articles on the subject after I had sent you the email. It was excellent information. Your site was the only one with this information and had I not found it, my fish would still be smothering in ammonia!! I am really happy now."
