What type of things do Honey gourami like?
Answer: They like planted aquariums, slowly moving water and subdued lighting. They also prefer being in groups. Of course, even they’re small, they also need a big aquarium because they’re Gouramis. And all Gouramis are quite territorial. Some are more, some are less.
Regarding conditions in the aquarium, pH can be 7 and carbonate hardness should be at least 4. dGH should be between 4 and 12.
Caves and caves are welcome by this species!
