Honey Gourami 3.5cm
The fish inhabits in Northeast India and Bangladesh in river Gang and Brahmaputra basins, in thickly planted waters.
The fish is often encountered in lakes, ponds, small rivers, flooded fields and even drains. A lot of habitats are prone to seasonal droughts, that last from June to October.
As a rule the fish dwells in waters with lots of plants and soft, low mineralized water. Honey gourami feeds on insects, their larvae and various zooplankton.
The honey gourami is generally considered to be a non-aggressive community fish, ideal for small aquaria (10 gallons and up). However like other gouramis, male honey gouramis can be aggressive towards each other. For this reason they are best kept apart, unless the tank is large enough for the males to establish territories.
A tank that includes this fish should be planted and decorated to provide adequate cover. Providing cover is necessary as this species, like the similarly sized dwarf gourami, can be rather timid, and aggressive tankmates are best avoided. Good tankmates include non-fin nipping tetras, non-fin nippingbarbs, platys and other gouramis. Water temperature should be maintained at around 22 to 28 °C. Water chemistry is not critical, but extremes should be avoided.[
They are a very peaceful fish, and are also not picky eaters. During spawning, the male will build a bubblenest and may become territorial toward other fish. Males should be removed from the tank after spawning and the females should be removed a couple days after hatching, as they will eat the fry. These fish prefer a heavily planted aquarium. These are an ideal addition to most community tanks with livebearers, Tetras, Danios, Rasboras, Rainbowfish, Loaches, Barbs, plecos, and most scavengers.
