Honey gourami gender

Hello! I have 3 wild-type honey gouramis, and I've been getting a lot of mixed responses about their genders. I've been told 2 males 1 female, 1 male 2 females, and 3 males, so I'm looking for another opinion. Thank you!

Hi and welcome to the forum

You have 3 male honey gouramis, the brightly coloured one in the bottom picture is the dominant male, the others are being picked on and won't show full colour in a tank with a dominant male.

Female honey gouramis that are original wild colour, don't have a black stripe on the anal (bottom) fin, males do.

The following link has more info on them including a picture showing male and female.
