Accidentally bought 2 male honey gouramis instead of one. Will they be fine

KartoKartofel

I bought 1 male red honey gourami, and what I assumed to be 3 females because of the pale colors and stripes. I only realized a day later that one of the "females" was actually a male, by the dorsal fin, which was spiky like that of a male. I lost the receipt like an idiot, so, will they be fine? I've noticed no aggression so far.


Edit: The tank is 20 gallons and heavily planted.


I might post pictures later if necessary.

The shape of the dorsal fin isn’t a reliable indicator of sex in honey gouramis; it’s the fin’s color.. A picture would be helpful.

Well, that was unexpected....2 of the 3 Pale white gouramis with a stripe in the middle got darker and now resemble a wild honey gourami with a darker bottom half. Sorry for the poor picture quality, so far, the males have interacted with each other and seem docile...for now.
