as far as i know 1 to 1... that is, if you can even find a female. if you do find two females i suppose a trio could also work.

I think I have a female. Its one of the "neon" kind (bright blue with orange/red stripes). It gets picked on relentlessly by the male (flame/fire)... idk if this is an indication of a male/female pair. I figured it must be though. I thought male gouramis were supposed to get along.

how big is the tank first of all? generally only one male and one female per tank depending on size... multiple pairs in a small space get tricky.

in that case yes. two pairs is easy in either of those. just provide lots of hiding places so the two males can have territores to claim and to prevent fighting.

yeah, some more hiding spots will help disperse that so nothing gets too serious. it also helps to compltetely rearrange the decor every once in a while, that way they have to redraw boundaries.
