    Me again.

    I was at my local lfs today and bought 2 of these little fellas. They were marked Flame Dwarf Gouramis, I looked at them and asked the lady if she was sure, because they looked like honey. She said yes when she got them instock that is what they were labeled as by the supplier and that they were juveniles. So I said ok ill get 2. I have been researching and to me they look like red honey gouramis. What do you guys think. And if they are honey should I get one more? And can anyone sex them? I will keep them either way they are adorable.

    Sweet thank you;) I was thinking they are males too I hope they dont start scrapping they all looked the same at the store so I am guessing I may have too look for females.

    Do you think that 2 males will work in my 29g? I hope they dont start fighting. I guess if they do I can separate them. Also I would like a powder blue dward gourami...wondering if this would work or not.

    Yeah, the two should work together in a tank that size. But definitely don't get a powder blue. Dwarf Gouramis would need a 29g all to themselves.
