I agree the guppies are very hardy. However I wouldn't put a pearl gourami in a 10 gallon tank, they get too big. The honey gourami would work best, if you can find. My local Petco ordered some for me at my request and they were nice and have worked out fine. They need plants for cover, even floating ones to be comfortable and behave more naturally. Good luck!

I have three gouramis with my guppies in a 55 gallon tank and they get along great. As long as the gouramis are young when introduced to community fish you will be fine. I also have my 3 bettas living with 6 guppies in a 20 gallon and they dont even fight.

Good luck!

I have a dwarf gourami in a 10gal with 5 guppies, they were a little scared of him at first but they are used to each other now. No problems at all.

mPhish did you put the dg and guppies in your new tank first? I'm wondering how hardy guppies are. I'm thinking of adding the guppies to my tank first.
