Nice dwarfs. Those are all males. The females are kind of a drab brown color.

Yeah. I knew the females were more drab than that with the wild type coloring. I wasn't sure once you got to the color morphs if that was the case or not. Damn. I'd like a female now.

They all get along though, believe it or not.

Check the fish profiles and they will tell you how to sex them. You can click on the shaded name of the fish in your post or go to the top of the page and click on "Tropical fish Profiles". There is a picture of a male and female Honey Gourami in the profile. For the Dwarf the males are more colorful (there is a pic of a male in the profile) and the females are much plainer in color.

they are probably stressed. fish never look the same in the shop as in an aquarium. or they may be wrongly identfied...do you think they would mind if you took some pictures of the gouramis? it would help to see them.
oh and theres also a fair bit of variation in colour etc.

hehe :) flash can make fish look weird, you probably don't need it if you have steady hands. what kind of camera do u have and can you control things like the exposure etc. ?

Here is another picture of my beautiful Blue.



I really like this fish but I wish that Gourami would get along better with each other. I would love to have a few more of them in my tank. :|

At least you have the option for a sorority. In the Gourami, mine at least were just as aggressive as females together. One of my female Gold killed 2 of the other ones. Now I only have 1. I don't want to risk another death in my tank. The aggression was getting out of hand and she was starting to go after other fish in the tank as well. Not my goal as a hobby fish keeper.
