Whoa whoa alright guys thanks for the answers! By bigger fish I meant "Larger than cardinal tetras" really...maybe like swordtail or platy size.

I'm definitely not putting another gourami in there besides another female pearl. (Just out of curiosity, would adding two female pearls for a total of 4 pearls be alright in this tank? It is quite over filtered because it used to be a fancy goldfish tank).

I'll look at male they have any tendency to fight aggressively with each other?

I had no trouble with 5 in my 45. 1m and 4f. I wouldn't do more than 4 in your tank though.

The swords might squabble from time to time but shouldn't be anything requiring intervention on your part.

Here's a thought - When I was in high school, I bred Pearl Leeris in a 15 gallon tank. Breeding bubble-nest builders can be a fun thing to do.

Matthew 22:37-39
37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’[a] 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’[b]

I think it's best we stay on subject and help the OP with their specific questions. You however can start your own thread on your breeding experiences. I'm sure we all would enjoy hearing your fishkeeping experience
