Question neons and blue gouramis?

i have 2 blue gouramis in a 20 gallon tank and 2 platys, 3 neons, 1 zebra in a 10 gallon tank, can i add the fish from the ten into the 20? are they all compatible?

Yes, those fish should be able to get along. No guarantees (as usual in the fish-keeping world) but those species aren't incompatible.

The gouramis are the biggest question mark. If you have a problem, it will most likely be from them.

Best of luck!

More than likely a gourami that big will snack on the neons.

You also may need a couple of bottom dwellers of some kind.

I have a friend with gouramis, neons, and a zebra. They all work out fine, but his two gouramis will bicker every now and then.
