Honey Sunset Gourami

I recently have gotten a honey sunset gourami to try but I was just curious if anyone else had one because I've just recently heard about them at my petsmart and it looks like a blue gourami only reddish with clear fins for the most part and no spots

I have heard that sometimes the Honey Gourami is injected with dye to create the Blue Sunset or the Green Sunset variety. I would avoid any fish that has been injected with dye or altered in any other way so that the practice is not supported. The one you have sounds ok.

The honey sunset gourami that I have seen at my LFS looks really small...sort of like a dwarf and is a honey color. It is shaped like the dwarf instead of the 3-spots.

Yeah but it's supposed to grow to be 4" according to the sign at petsmart

Mine look like the red dwarf gourami in color but the shape of a blue gourami
