dwarf honey gouramis are perfect and are immune to gourami disease and are the least agressive ones. males are agressive with each other so a pair or single in my opinion.

:huh:
Do you mean honey gouramis are immune to DGD disease? It remains a mystery what a ' dwarf honey gourami ' actually is.

I would do pearls instead of honeys, in a 300 liter they will make more of an impact as they are bigger and are more heavily built. :)

The pearls are just as peaceful.
The honeys probably won't fight between males. No garuntees though. :)

ive read that a honey gourami is smaller than a dg and is immune to the dgd

I've kept dwarf in my 200 litre community tank with amano shrimp, no issues.
Got an opaline gourami in there now, lovely fish but a bit of a bully with my keyhole cichlid. Leaves everyone else alone though!

Thhat's true. But I've know clue what a ' honey dwarf gourami ' is. It may be a hybrid, it may be some guys attempt at selling infected dwarf gouramis.

They may eat the shrimpletes, but pearls may be too lazy to go after them.
