Talking Gaint Opeline Gourami

I was at my friends house picking up some kribs and in his custom 225 gal tank he had a Huge Opeline gourami that he got from the lfs ( aparently a guy brought it in to the fish store because it got to big) it was proboly 10 iches long i know it was crazy ive never seen one soo big. Maby it is half giant gourami.

Snakeskin gouramis can get up to 10". I've also seen live giant gourami with similar markings to the opaline in a supermarket here (on sale to eat, not keep in an aquarium ).

It is an opeline though. I know that because it look exactly like the ones in my tank.
