Male Or Female

    Hi everyone. I got this to lovely Gold Honey Gourami last week. I can't tell if they are male or female. I have looked at pictures online and came to the conclusion they were both male but they behave more like a male and female. The one on the left is a much brighter yellow (I assume he is male) then the one on the right which I think is female, but as you can see neither of them have a stripe. I've tried looking at their fins and both seem to be pointed at the end. So, this has become a conundrum. I want to get a few more but want to have a proper ration of M:F so if anyone with more experience with gourami can tell if they are male or female I would greatly appreciate it.

    Okè tanks but from what I see they look like male. But that doesn't mean they are. I had a male and female dg and I thought they were male but one turned out to be female. Because of inappropriate breeding she looked like a male

    I thought so too. Was really hoping one was female. That is what I asked for. So if I want to get more what should the ratio be since I have two males? If I got 3 or 4 female would that work?

    I think 4 female would work
