    does anyone know any tricks on how to differentiate the various "sunset", "flame" or "honey" color morphs of the dwarf gourami from the true honey gourami? I have seen pictures on the internet and they look pretty much identical to me...

    i have had asked the same question before, but no one actually answered it.

    Hopefully someone will chime in this time for ya.

    Learn to give and take. That's how things should always work.

    I do not really know if I would call it tricks but anyone who have seen both species should have no problem telling them apart. The true hony gourami is a lot more gracil and slender. They do not have the same big stomachs that the dwarf gourami get. When newly eaten the stomach is clearly defined in a dwarf gourami. In a honey gourami the stomach will be much less defined. It is hard to explain but easy to see if you know what to look for.
    Do as I say. Not as I do.

    Trichogaster chuna

    Trichogaster lalius formerly called Colisa lalia

    William's description of the two and their differences is right on. And, as he stated, when you see the two together, the differences are quite noticeable.
