    I have two honey Gourami and a dwarve gourami the dwarve gourami is older a bit bigger and more aggressive these are in my 55g community tank (more info on tank in my home page). The dwarve g has been terrorizing the whole tank and we may get rid of him but will the honey gourami get as aggressive. Thank you for your time to read this have a wonderful day.

    Honey gouramis are usually very mellow. You should have no issues with it.

    Dwarf gouramis are Trichogaster lalius.
    Honey gouramis are Trichogaster chuna.

    I agree with @Bruxes and Bubbles. Honey gourami are not dwarf gouramis, although they actually stay slightly smaller than most dwarf gouramis. Honey gouramis are peaceful and you can keep multiple honeys together as long as you have the tank space. I keep two in my 29-gallon. They are sweet, curious fish and they spend a lot of time together.

    Honey gouramis are different species of fish. Same thing with the dwarf gourami. Dwarf gouramis get quite aggressive especially if kept both males together. Honey gouramis are peaceful.
