tank mates for a Blue Gourami?

i've got a 20 gallon in need of new inhabitants!

right now there are: the above mentioned blue gourami, 4 kuhli loaches, 1 bristlenose pleco.

i'm leaning towards going the platy route (they will work with the gourami, right?), but i'd love to hear any suggestions as well as quantity recommendations.

many thanks!

Sure, I have 2 gouramis in my tank along with platys, tetras are good too, anything community should work.

As long as the gourami is the only semi-aggressive fish in the tank swimming around, most community fish do well. Tetras are a good choice.

I had mine in with harlequin rasboras and male guppies, and everything was fine. Of course it was a flame dwarf gourami, which were more peaceful than my cobalts, but it might work. Try to get fish that are faster than him, and the harlequins would be, and anything without a longer tail.
