Honey versus dwarf spawning cycle.

Hey guys
since i had my own dramas with dwarf gouramis, my friend has decided not to get them for his tank.
he went to the store that I go to, which is pretty big and the owner seems to know what he's talking about, and they told him that in terms of aggression all gourami males are bad, but that the Honey gourami is the best because its the most peaceful and rather than the males just building bubble nests and getting territorial all the time, they just get aggressive for a few days once every month or so.
Is this correct?

Peaceful, yes.:)

They are still the same as other gouramis. They get aggressive during spawning season. The exception is that they don't at least get aggressive without nearing the spawning conditions.:)

Unusual combination of a human and fish. Your offspring would be a mermaid.

That will depend on the individual.:) Some will make bubblenest, some will not.
When I say spawning season, that is the stage wherein they begin to act in an unusual manner and in the following days, spawning behavior will become obvious. It can be triggered by various circumstances depending on what happens in their native habitat.

So how often is it, or is it all the time? And does it differ in terms of timing between dwarfs and honeys?? :)

Agreed. I will add that females should be removed immediately when they finished spawning. Male anbantids are known to beat their partners right after spawning.
