I've found dwarf gourami to be fairly hardy, although they tend to pick on each other sometimes.

One would be fine, moorish. Two might be pushing it, IMO. They don't get huge, but I think with one Dwarf and a small schooling fish, you would be lookin' really good.

It's a situation by situation kind of thing. You could fit 2 dwarfs in a 10 - in one situation they might fight so much you would have to bring one back, in another, they would be fine.

If you go for it, I suggest either a male and female or 2 females.

i agree ... need to have at least the 1:1 ratio. I kept 2 dwarf gourami in a previous 10 gallon tank of mine and they were fine after an initial day of territory games.
