Question Gourami compatibility with glofish?

So I would like to get a gourami, but I'm not sure if they are compatible with glofish. I know the dwarf gourmis are, but please let me know if any of the following gouramis are compatible as well:

- Gold/Blue
- Opaline
- Pearl

Thanks!

Glofish are genetically-modified Zebra Danio so the info on this species in our profiles [you can click the shaded name to see the profile] is relevant. And as these are active swimmers, they should not be housed with sedate fish such as any of the gourami. The Danio/glofish may annoy the gourami with their constant activity.

Secondarily, some of the gourami get quite large and all are territorial, males particularly. They sometimes take a dislike to other fish. Tank size has a major role in this, as without sufficient "space" many fish become more aggressive than normally they would be. You can check our profiles on the listed gourami species, Blue Gourami [the Gold and Opaline are the same species, just colour variants], Pearl Gourami, and Dwarf Gourami for info on tank sizes, numbers, etc.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If youíre going to take it under your wing then youíre responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
