Honey Gourami Identification/sexing


Recommended Posts

Those are actually not honey gourami but thick lipped gourami. Stores often label them as "red honey gourami" but they are a seperate species from a honey. It does look like you have a male and a female. You can tell by the dorsal fin. Males have a pointed dorsal and females rounded. Here's my 2 thick lipped gourami. 

Here's Fred with the pointed dorsal. 


And Sally with the rounded dorsal 



I have entire back stories for them. You don't wanna know lol
