Honey Gouramis, like most types of Gouramis, live best in a group with at least 3 males, and about twice as many females. So you might decide to order 3 males and 5 females. One
male and one female, or two males, is not a good combination.

Hello, I noticed that you don't have a picture of a Honey Gourami and thought you might like one. This is one of
the 6 that we purchased from you a few months ago and they are all doing very well. I think this one must be a female since she has little color. We have 2 that are very dark
along their bottom edge and head. Can we assume they are males? The other 4 have the same coloring as the one in the picture with a faint greyish streak across their middles
which is sometimes not visible at all.
They are so fun to watch but seem timid about getting photographed. We've found that they get along well with just about anything else in the tank and aren't the least bit
aggressive. We also have one Pink Kissing Gourami that we "rescued" and they even seem to get along with him. They've sort adopted him into their group which I found
rather strange, but heart warming none the less.
Enjoy the picture and I'll try to get one of the males soon.
Reply. Hello Lesley. Thank you for your picture.
We're glad to hear that the Honey Gouramis you got from us are all doing well, and you are correct about the coloration. The Honey Gourami in the picture looks like a female or
possibly a young male that is not in breeding coloration.
The Honey Gouramis that are "very dark along their bottom edge and head" are males. We would appreciate a picture of one of your males.
I enjoyed reading your comments and agree with you that Honey Gouramis are very good aquarium fish. Thanks again.
