Badis, Sparkler, or Threadfin?

Hey AA, my LFS just got in some scarlet badis, sparkling gourami, and some threadfin rainbows. The LFS guy said that he would recommend any of them for my tank. I have done some quick research and I want to know what you guys think. This will last till 10:00 ES. Say the name of the fish you would like me to purchase and whichever has the most votes by 10:00 I will purchase.

Update: Badis is off the list. I am afraid that they are just too small.

I'd say the gourami. Thread fins can be skittish unless you got a large group.

+1 for gourami! I also do 30% weekly pwcs. I am going to save the badis for a 10 gallon with some CPDs and RCS.

I'd get a mate for your Bolivian. If you need help sexing the one you have I'd be glad to help.

He's a male. Love that fish to death, but I don't want him spawning and being aggressive in the community tank.
