Honey Gouraminorthern with a length of 7 centimetres
Native to India and Bangladesh, and occasionally in Nepal the Honey Gouraminorthern reaches a length of 7 centimetres (2.8 in) and has orange-colored bodies. Male specimens of this fish, are generally more colorful than their female counterparts. They exhibit bright orange coloring around the throat region. Males also exhibit somewhat of an orange tinge in their fins, with the exception of the caudal fin. The male also has longer fins, with a pointed dorsal fin and extended anal fin rays.Two other color varieties have been selectively bred—a red-orange variety known as sunset or robin red, and a lighter variety called gold. This can sometimes lead to confusion, in part because the red-orange type can look like the red variety of dwarf gourami (Colisa lalia).
