Dwarf Honey Red Gourami (Males)

The Dwarf Red Honey Gourami, Trichogaster (Colisa) chuna, is a unique fish falling into a category called (Labyrinth Fish), meaning they need to access the waters surface to breath. This absolutely stunning fish is a great addition to any fish tank due to their unique orange/reddish color. Male and females in this species appear with the same coloration with males showing more red during spawning.

The Red Honey Gourami is a peaceful fish getting along with a large variety of tankmates. During spawning the males will create a bubble nest and court the female, during this process eggs will get distributed into the bubbles, males can become aggressive when guarding this area and the females may need moved.
