Dwarf Gourami and Guppies

I setting up my planted ten gallon tank again and have decided I want to start out with a Dwarf Gourami and 3 guppies (1m:2f). I have researched both and think they will be fine together but I have seen conflicting info. So tell me what you think and any experiences with the two together. Thanks

In the past it worked for me. However it can be hit an miss. Many anabantoids have different personalities. For example I had a DG who loved his tank mates and would swim with them and have had one who killed everyone.

It should work, but have a backup plan.

It work for me. I use to have 4 guppies and one dwarf gourami. They did just find. But it's a hit and miss.

Ya that is want I'm thinking, hit or miss. Anyone else have experience with these together? Also are these hardy fish? I know dg's can be iffy but I can't find anything on guppies.

I have kept honey gourami with guppies, no problem. I have not kept a dwarf one, would be afraid to try personally.

As much as I love them, the petsmart and petco won't have them and they are the only pet stores around.

If you love them and are willing, you could have them shipped.

I keep a dwarf gourami with guppies in my 30 gallon along with some other types. No problem whatsoever in mine.
