Catching Tiger Gourami
- Commentary: The most efficient way to catch large volumes of Tiger Gourami is to wait for it to be Fish of the Day at Master Snowdrift's Pagoda (Tiger Gourami Slush and Large Pool of Tiger Gourami Slush). Without an active Fish of the Day migration, the fastest way to catch Tiger Gourami is to fish Tiger Gourami School, which are the only pool type found in northern Kun-Lai Summit. The majority of pools are found in lakes around Zouchin Provence, but many require flight to fish effectively. Lower-level anglers can jump down the mountain from easily accessible locations near the Peak of Serenity and Temple of the White Tiger, but such jumps can be.. messy.

Comments about Tiger Gourami
Below are readers' comments about "Tiger Gourami":
donquixote235, October 2012:
I recently discovered that intrepid monk anglers can start farming Tiger Gourami as low as level 20.
At lvl 20 they will receive the spell Zen Pilgrimage, which takes them to the Peak of Serenity in Kun Lai Summit. On the peak are two pools of water, which can spawn nodes of Tiger Gourami. There is also a fishing trainer nearby.
It's technically possible to train your fishing skill from 1 to 600 at lvl 20 entirely on Pandaren fishing, without ever leaving the Peak.
