Honeys are the best gourami to be kept together. This is more about tank size. I'd recommend larger than a 10g personally. Also be careful mizing gourami, it can work out well but eventually it can go wrong depending on the gourami. Some gourami can get pretty big too.Personally in a 29 Gal I have 5 Gouramis (one of them is a honey) and they all get along really well. I know I have 5 and it's a 29 Gal but I think the 2 honey gouramis will be fine together. If you do 1 inch per gallon you could even add a few shrimp or snails.
You can add snails with a male betta as well as other non-betta looking fish (ie not fancy guppies). Otocinclus, dwarf plecos, platys, tetras, mollies, danios, corys, even an African dwarf frog.Ok. I think I'm gonna go with 1 male Betta. Is there anything else that I can add like snails? Or do they tend to be messy?
Mystery snails are my personal favorite... but mine got preggers at the pet store so now I have about 50.... lol. Nerite snails lay ugly eggs everywhere that are hard to get off and never hatch in fresh water. They also don’t have as much personality. I’m a wee biased though, being a grandma to 50 mysteries XD
