which is better to have? i know most of the time it comes down to personal choice but in this particular decision making process i want to throw one additional factor in... when the time comes i'll be picking up a 125g or 150g AND a BGK.
i know the Dwarfs only get like 2" and would most likely be eaten by the BGK but thats just an assumption.
There are many species of gourami, not just dwarf gourami and gourami. With the tank space that you're going to have, I would personally pick a larger gourami than a dwarf. Pearl gouramis get larger than dwarfs, are relatively peaceful, and can be kept in groups. They should be too large to get eaten by a BGK.
Definitely would go with the pearl as said, I have one & he's peaceful with his tank mates

The 125 is coming at a great deal to me... Tank, stand, lights, in stand filter(sump I think??) pretty much everything I need for around $200 from a coworker so im gonna buy it, if I won't need it for a while I'll just store it
