Dwarf Gourami and Black Skirt Tetra

Hello everyone I currently have 5- Cory Cats, 1-Bristlenose Pleco, 7 Black Skirt Tetras in a Tank. I am wondering about getting a single Dwarf or Pearl Gourami to finish off the tank with some color. Will the Tetras work well with a single gourami and which would be the best gourami to work with them? Any advise would be appreciated. Thanks!

Assuming your tank and filter are large enough for the bioload, it should be fine. Sometimes skirt tetras can be nippy, but it depends on the individual group and they are not usually a problem.

Thank you all for your advise I decided to go with the dwarf gourami and absolutely love it and it seems to be getting along just fine with the other fish.
