I love Pearls, I haven't kept them yet, but have done a lot of reading up, and see a ton of threads and journals tracking the progress of others. . . I've seen it happen before where fish that are typically considered to be incompatible have been kept together with no issues - but more often than not, mixing gourami seems to end badly when the fish reach maturity - particularity in smaller tanks. Personally, I wouldn't be comfortable trying it. . . it's your decision, of course - but if you do decide to mix these, I'd advise you to be certain to have a back-up plan in place. Better safe than sad, right?
I'm planning to put Pearls in with my Bolivian Rams and kuhli loaches - but I'm holding off on that until I get a bigger tank set up. . . mixing cichlids and gourami can be iffy, too. This tank is about 19" tall, I'm assuming? Do you think rams would work here, Jaysee?
