Honey=honey sunset=dwarf sunset?

FinalFins

Well there’s a couple things to consider. Honey gourami can be different from sunset honey gourami and dwarf honey gourami.

The name honey Gourami is commonly associated with Trichogaster chuna but however the species Trichogaster labiosa is also sold under the name honey gourami and most commonly sunset/sunset honey gourami. I’ve never heard the name dwarf honey gourami in trade however online some people describe dwarf gourami T. Ialius under the name dwarf honey gourami.

Species aside your question rather relies on the tank size and volume. The amount of gourami would depend on the species however. If you can specify the exact species (or a photo of the fish you intend to buy) and your tank size that would greatly help the answers that are given.

its a 25 hex, and I don't have a pic because I haven't even set up the tank fully yet, I'm just trying to plan stocking and want to know. Fishkeepingworld.com puts honey Gourami as in the family Osphronemidae.

The problem that I’m addressing is that theres multiple fish sold under the names you specified so you need to make it more exact to the species you want. And yes, they are in that family.

You're welcome! It doesn't help that honeys ,dwarfs and thick lipped are given so many names based on color morphs and variations.

I personally keep two golden honey Gouramis with my Celestial Pearl Danios and Endlers and they do really well together. They literally have no interaction and the honey gouramis are super chill.

The fish in the photo is not the true honey gourami. It's the red strain of the thicklip gourami, which can grow up to 4".
