The elephant nose does best alone. Also, the monos will need brackish or saltwater soon

I have an elephant nose and he doesn't like any company I've just had to remove my bnp as he was being very aggressive to her.

I wouldn't add the opaline Gouramis because they can be highly aggressive.

From what I gather all of them 'can' be highly aggressive. I had 2 golden gourami and 1 was peaceful and didn't bother any other fish and the other was extremely aggressive to the point of killing fish so had to re home him. It's your luck really on the personality of the fish. Also the gouramis would bully the dwarf gourami again in my own experience.

Agreed. The other gouramis wouldn't be a good mix with dwarfs IMO.

Female opaline Gouramis are less aggressive so they might be compatible.
