You need to be very careful with keeping multiple species of Gouramis; they are anabantids and will fight for territories.

Now, we need to know a bit more about your tank.
How big is it?
Water parameters?
Other inhabitants?
When was it setup?
When was the honey added?
And anything else you know to help us.

probably stressed out by the blue gourami...honey's don't like bigger fish than themselves to begin with, and Trichogaster T's can be a real pest stressing its tankmates
