What sort of fish is the big one in this picture? I saw it in an aquarium so I don't really know anything about its habitat.

Its a Giant Gourami, Osphronemus goramy.

The giant gourami (Osphronemus goramy) is a freshwater species believed to be native to Southeast Asia, and has been introduced to other parts of the world.

This species is commercially important as a food fish and an aquarium fish.

    $\begingroup$ Several smaller gouramis' are common in the aquarium trade ; this one maybe only as a special order. Interestingly one of the small ones is also called "giant" (about 4 in. long). $\endgroup$ Commented Aug 17, 2017 at 20:23
