Can I get a Dwarf Gourami?
I went to the lfs
today and saw that they had some gorgeous Powder Blue Dwarf Gouramis. I'd never seen Gouramis look as good as these guys did! They were brightly colored with no signs of distress (patchy scales, ich, etc.). They were just beautiful! I wanted so badly to get one right then and there, but decided not to buy on impulse (yay to me for resisting the urge!!).
The reason I'm not sure if I can or should get one is because it would have to go in a 10 gallon which already has fish in it. I have (4) Neon Tetras, (4) Von Rio Tetras, and (3) Julii Corys. All of these guys are small, active, and healthy. My main concerns are... #1) Will these fish be able to share the same space and still be happy and healthy?... #2) Will getting a Gourami overcrowd the tank?
If a Gourami is basically a no go, what about a Betta (male or female... it doesn't really matter)?
Any thoughts are welcome!
