Just for information purposes, you can safely tell anyone interested in the pink gourami that it will need at least 55 gallons at this stage, but will need at least 75 gallons by the time it's done growing, and not to crowd it with anything. Keep tank mates semi aggressive, such as barbs... they do well together, as do some of the "larger" rainbow species.
As for the blue gourami, if all you have in the tank is the 1 oscar and the blue gourami, I am confident this could be made to work for a couple of months if you keep up with the water changes and keep them well fed. Watch growth rates so that the oscar doesn't outsize the gourami enough to view it as food, and you should be ok until your other tank is ready, provided it's in the next couple of months.
Good Luck and let me know how it all goes, or if you need any further help.
