    I live in Thailand and don't speak the language so it's hard for me to ID the fish at my local aquarium shops. The Thai words on the tanks just spell the Thai word for 'gourami' but not the specific type. Despite bad photo quality, can anyone ID these? I'm particularly interested in the light ones with red fins as I'm hoping they're some kind of honey gourami?

    Thanks!

    Hi and welcome to the forum :)

    The 1st picture looks like it has mainly blue/ opaline gouramis and 1 or 2 pearl gouramis. The pearl is brown with white spots.
    The orange and red fish in the 3rd picture are an orange colour form of the honey dwarf gourami.

    The last 3 pictures only have a x where the picture should be.

    yeah they could be thick lip gouramis. Not the best quality fish tho, some of them look like mutants.

    I didn't notice the bodies in the tank either. Probably best to avoid the fish from there.
