    Hi Guys,

    I recently got a pair of Honey Gourami, one Yellow and one Sunset.

    Yellow guy has settled in fine but Sunset seems to be bonkers. He is "pacing" across the aquarium glass and rarely stops, mostly for food. Visually he looks healthy, I have included some pics of him. The tank is a 33 Gallon and it's live planted

    Thanks!

    The sunset is another species T.labiosa.

    Gouramis like water with a low flow/current and floatingplants.

    Male gouramies of many sorts like to claim a territory. If you have 2 males and one has claimed your tank as it's territory the other is looking for a different place to call home. I keep a number of gouramies in a 120G tank but I have used decor to break it into separate zones. I'm not saying this is your problem but it's a possibility. Try dividing your tank in two with your ornaments and see if they settle.
