Hard to tell from the picture of the fish by itself but I think that one is a very colorful powder blue female.

You should verify that it is the tank that is leaking and not something else, I.e filter. If you can verify it's the tank, I would just replace it

Yeah I wasn't sure because they had flame reds and powder blue in the same tank so I figured those 2 must be females. The thing that threw me off is the sign said they had honey gourami and the...

Yes that is the only flaw so far. With all 3 colors on full it gets almost too hot to touch.

I think with 5 strips or a wider threshold heat won't be as much or an issue as it is now.

If you don't mind the light being wider than the tank you can get the 24 inch ray 2 and just slide the legs in to fit on the tank. The light will just stick out by 2 inches on each side of your tank
