1 more honey Gourami should be ok. It's small enough to not overload your bio system and since it's an Anabantoid, it will use more oxygen from the air bubble it takes in it's labyrinth organ than it will from the tank water.

Nice set up. Plants look great. Please keep us posted how it evolves and if the gouramis continue to get along.

There ya have it. Blue ram calls the shots so the gouramis have to fall in line. Good idea

First time for snails too..doing real well eating a ton I'm using frozen zucchini no presev. Keeping tank clean..only thing gouramis seem to be grazers..they'll eat but picky..I'm feeding variety frozen brine flake sinking wafers dried bloodworms..not all at once of course but tank parameters are great..

If you can swing it, the gourami will love bug bites, .7-1mm size. GUARANTEED. If your a pet smart member (or what ever it is when they ask me for my phone number) you can get a small jar for $3.45 there abouts. I bought one last week.
