That's funny, because I've never seen nor heard of any store in my state that carries female dwarf gourami... hehe

Not sure if you can get them where you are, but what about Borneo Suckers. Similar to plecos but up to 8cm (oops, 3" or so). Very peaceful, great match for corys. Just need some large pebbles for them to hide and scoot around in. I want some bit my bristlenoses surprisingly rule the roost! and push the corys around, and have even pushed my angels and dwarf gouramis around a bit!

Ok, i heard someone say they couldn't find female gouramis. I couldn't either, but i asked my local pet guy and he specifically got 2 in for me from a supplier. If you build a good relationship with these guys they'll hook you up sometimes, but only if you ask! My male was more gentle then the female, but i think there is somewhat random.
