Any smaller tetra would work. Do you have anything on the bottom? A small school of cories would be nice. Just as an aside a blue opaline gourami is a bit large for a ten gallon tank.

I've kept my blue gourami with bettas, mollies, cories, oto cats, and other gouramis. I don't recommend other species of gourami though because mine used to chase them around constantly despite how submissive he is.

The blue gourami will outgrow the 10g...so be looking for a bigger tank.

As far as tankmates, I have my opaline (close to a blue) gourami with glowlight and neon tetras, panda cories, and ottos. I added a Bolivian ram recently and the opaline kept chasing her, so I had to move her to my 55g. I wouldn't keep them with similar sized fish.
