Vethian said:I do like the Honey Gourami. Do they have the same disease issues the Dwarf Gourami have?
The Dwarf Gourami was the species highly infected with iridovirus some years back, and it is still appearing in some fish of this species. One has to know the actual breeder. According to most sources, the Honey is not the risk that the Dwarf species poses. And many who caution never acquiring the Dwarf will recommend the Honey.
Discerning male/female is easy with the Honey, so one can get a male and two females, or two males and 3-4 females.
