Dwarf gourami come in a gold variant, so it's probably that. You could fit in a dwarf probably, but they are much more active than honeys so it depends on how you feel about active fish in a smaller space.

Hrm, they have really too many types of Gouramis there.

I've saw the Three Spotted ones also. I don't believe they Dwarf Honeys are actually just a different variation of the Dwarf Gourami, because I saw something called a Gold Gourami, it was lacking the spots for a three spotted Gourami, so I'm assuming it's just a Dwarf Gourami that's just gold color. :)

bekah, can you separate them from the other fish? In like a breeding mesh? I'm sure there's tons of info on breeding cory online, they are a pretty simple fish. :)
Okay.. so
THIS is a monster (not really, but still big). It is actually a 3 spot gourami. You can see the light/dark patten, and one spot near the tail base.


This is a yellow dwarf gourami.. it is techincally supposed to be a red flame but some are yellow. I think the blue on the dorsal is the key ID feature:


These are honeys (one is a red phase). Healthy honey males should have a dark anal fin, belly, and chin, though young ones/stressed pet shop fish may not have it. The main photo is a male with extensive dark markings, usually it's less noticeable.:

Yeah I'm pretty sure my LPS is selling actual Honeys. :) I could see the reddish anal fin and coloration. And the guys are tiny, when I mean tiny, they were about an inch. The other Gouramis weren't that tiny though. . .

I'll use the pictures as a reference when I got one of them to make sure I don't accidentally buy a Dwarf or Three Spotted one. Although the Three Spotted ones are easy to distinct, since they have the spots. Dwarf ones are a bit harder to differentiate from Honeys so I'll just squat and stare at them just to be sure, the employees will probably think I'm crazy.

Thanks Olympia. :)

3 spot gouramis can get like, 6 inches long.

I have something that I was told were honey gouramis. I think mine are babies although they aren't getting any bigger. A pair of honey gouramis aren't too territorial, as long as it's a male and a female. Two males? Nuh uh.

My otos are eating the spinach I left for the snail. No, you dumbnuts, eat the algae, the algae!

Hm, there's a female honey in that photo too, they are brown with a lateral stripe (like a betta! :D). I think gourami are slow growing too, not totally sure.

Lol, Sakura your otos are my heros. They are rebels, not doing what they are told to. :D

i dont have a breeding mesh D: it does seem simple. it sounds like i just need to start getting a bunch of live plants. i was recommended to put a fake plant by them so they'd be not quite in the sight of the other fish, like the danios.

speaking of the danios i have one being weird, keeps going to the same spot and almost looks like he's swimming in a current. its weird x3

alsoooo i should probably give up on Bea the snail. I don't think she's alive. And if i bury her or something i could put the cory eggs in it with an airstone, and i could get the ones that look like they've got a fungus out and away from the healthy looking eggs.
