    Trichogaster labiosa aren't considered "dwarf" gouramis, as far as I know, see "Behavior & Compatibility"

    Not in a 100 gallon tank. If was smaller then there might be a problem with aggression. Especially when (not if) the zebras spawn. But 100 gallon is enough to allow all the other fish to stay away from the zebras.

    With this being said. Zebras are bad ass and are able to kill the other fish if they so desire. I would likely replace them if they turn out to be zebras but hopefully they just look like zebras right now and will in fact grow out to be beautiful rams.

    How big are the rams now?
    Do as I say. Not as I do.

    See above, William

    I have no experience with cichlids, but would GBR's be sold at such a tiny size?

    Sorry missed the measurement. or rather forgot them. I just remembered that he said they were very small.

    Law dog. Look at the first 2 fin rays in the dorsal fin. They should be longer than the rest. (and most likely black). This feature develop very early in ram fry and should be present on fry your size but i can not see the dorsal fin in the picture. If you are unsure about what you should look for you can post a picture when it has the dorsal fin erected. That should clear up any confusion and allow us to determine whether it is a ram or not.
    Do as I say. Not as I do.

    My mistake, it is a Sunset Honey Gourami. That's good to hear!

    The Odessas are just over 1 inch or right at if I had to guess.

    I will look at them when I get home from work today. I really hope my LFS didn't mess up as the Rams were suppose to be one of the center pieces of my tank. If they end up being Zebras I will likely return them.

    Did they perhaps mean a Bolivian ram it still doesn't have any of the distinct black face stripe though. :/ We shall see in a day or so after they settle

    Has anyone heard of a Veil Blue Ram? I went back to my LFS and that's what the name on the tank that they came out of says. I tried searching google but every photo I came across just had Ram or GBR on the title even though there were many different color variations.

    Thanks Slap.......So basically this is a genetically modified Ram with possibly a weakened life span, great.

    Well, I should've paid more attention and been more specific when I purchased them but I was running out of time, my fault.

    Anyway, I went there today to exchange one of my sons Serpae Tetras that died the next day and ended up getting 2 more corys (last ones), 1 more Odessa (last one) and 5 more neons (last ones).

    They accidentally put another Sunset Honey Gourami in my bag that I didn't notice until I got home. I called the store and they said it was their fault (no charge to me) and told me to keep it as they had already netted another one out for the customer that it was meant for. I just hope the 2 I have now get along with each other and their tank mates now that there is more than 1 in the tank. Being a 100gal I think I may be OK though.

    So now I have 5 Odessas, 4 corys, 15 neons, 2 Rams, 1 BN Pleco, 2 marble Angels and 2 SH Gouramis. I also took all of the Vals out of my oldest sons tank and put them in mine along the back. He got some Water Onions to replace the Vals.
