Honey Dwarf Gourami
The Honey Gourami Trichogaster chuna (previously Colisa chuna and Colisa sota) becomes very pretty once it gets settled, making a very pleasant addition to a smaller aquarium. It is colored in soft hues of silvery gray to light yellow, sometimes with a very light horizontal brown stripe along the center. The male develops a vibrant honey color when in breeding mode. A strong contrasting blue-black marking adorns its underside running across the face, throat, and abdomen. It is also commonly known as the Honey Dwarf Gourami.
