Has anyone here ever tried this combination for themselves?
Tehe. I just want to say that grumpy is a very good word to describe dwarf gouramis.

I would watch keeping Gourami's in a tank with Tiger Barbs. They are fin nippers also!

I had to put my big blue 2-spot Gourami in my 10g tank once from an ammonia spike early last yr in my big tank (I put him in too soon, my fault!) and one of my Tiger Barbs ate his feeler/whiskers all the way off to the stems. They regrew, but I'm sure it was NOT a pleasant experience for him.
