Gourami info please

I've been given two gourami, which I have in a 30ish gal tank with a baby bushynose pleco. Each from different people. I read and read adn read and can't figure out what kinds they are, though I know which they aren't. I was told one is a dwarf honey gourami but it's huge easily 4" long, and was beat up by their angelfish. The second I was told is a blue, and while it is blue, I'm not sure if it's "A" blue, it is approx 2" and easily 1/5 the size of the honey.

What's happening here lol. I want to maximise the tank to what they'd like. And how do I attach pics for you guys.

My honey looks like this gold (not this pages honey), and I checked more like 5-6" long

My.blue looks like this' opaline and is about 2", very small I'm comparison. It's like having a freaking tetra and Oscar in my tank lol

Also, I've found loads on identifying and treating fish's wounds, but nothing on identifying problems with the wounds I.e. what does infection or fungal issue look like? I'm assuming it's doing fine, it's colors are better than when I got it, less wounded looking areas. I'm guessing fins don't regrow? One of its.....arm....fins looks like a two prong shrimp fork.
