Goldfish tankmate

Hi, I was wondering if kissing gouramis can go in with my goldfish? I love both and already have the goldfish. If so I want 2 of the gouramis. Anything will help.

You do not want two kissing gouramis. The stronger one will kill the other. It's kind of a 5+ or solitary fish- not a pair or trio. The gourami could get aggressive with the goldfish, have a back up plan. Also, the temperature requirements for both fish will make things interesting.

Hello i...

Goldfish are cold water fish. They're coldblooded. Tropical fish need warm water, they're warm blooded. The two can't go together in the same tank. Goldfish are fine alone. Just add some floating plants for some hiding places. The fish will feel more comfortable and be fine by itself.
