I don't know if female bettas and gouramis get along or not. I would think they do. Unless you have a female betta that doesn't want other fish around, you should be able to put her with most other community fish. You could try a school of gold pristella tetras. The four I have are fairly active and add color to the tank.

With any betta, YMMV. I have two females that were in a 50 gal and they would not leave each other alone! Then I put one in with my Badis and she is fine, but the other one is in with a smaller number of Badis and rams is a PITA. Once the ich treatment is over, she gets her own place!

I've got a female betta in with a pair of pearls. She tried to be the boss at first, but my male gourami put her in her place quickly and now they all get along fine. I guess the pecking order just had to be established- they've been together for over 6 months with no problems.
