    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 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.

    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.
