Great community fish

The honey gourami is a dwarf gourami and it only gets two inches long. They are great for community freshwater tanks, even as small as 10 gallons. They won't mess with other fish and need to be with other fish that won't be aggressive either. They are rather slow swimming but stay visible and aren't hiders.

This fish will happily eat flakes but always appreciates a treat of blood worms or brine shrimp. They are rather hardy and are great for beginners. Their coloring is one of the best, in my opinion, of the gouramis. They are a silvery blue and honey-rust color. One of the brighter freshwater fish.
