The Honey Gourami is a peaceful and attractive little fish that can only be properly kept in a community of very peaceful fish, it is timid and easily stressed by boisterous fish. A mature tank with good water quality is recommended, as is varied feeding and plenty of hiding spots amongst plants. A few different colour forms are available, the two fish at the top have natural colouration whilst the fish pictured at the bottom is a red form often described as 'red sunset honey gourami'. The natural form is a brown-yellow colour and is arguably more attractive. When in good condition, males will exhibit a strong dark patch under the throat and a much lighter dorsal fin. Although peaceful, a breeding pair will become territorial over a small area. An excellent aquarium fish for well-planted, very peaceful communities.
