Ya unless your set on breeding them, which would work best in a tank of their own, I'd get one male so he doesn't have to compete with the other. Plus most fish stores will say male gourami on the description because females are smaller & lacking color & probably wouldn't sell as good. You'd probably have to find one online or learn how to sex them & look around

A centerpiece fish is usually bigger than the rest. So its prob a chance you have to take

I don't know anything about shrimp really but I don't *think* the kind of fish you want would even be able to eat them if they wanted to. Someone with experience could answer that better I've never had shrimp.

Some get big some are small. With a 33gallon tank i would get a small or medium sized one. Do some research.
