Help with Planning tank for Honey Gourami?

I got a honey gourami a few days ago, and she is currently living happily in a 5.5 gallon. I know she is going to be needing a new, bigger tank soon. I was thinking about a 10 gallon tank. If I got a ten gallon tank, cycled and planted, what else could I put with my honey gourami?

Also, I haven't checked my water's pH, GH and KH in a while, I usually just check the ammonia, nitrite and nitrate. I've heard you can look it up on your water supply company's website. Is this the right website, because I can't find what I'm looking for on it, LOL!

You could have a pair of Hioney Gourami in a 10g. Some substrate fish too. Click on the shaded name for info on the species.

I looked at those water quality reports, I can't see any indication of hardness or pH. You may have to contact them.

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 you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

Over the years I have kept my Honey G. with a shoal of the smaller tetras...either Ember Tetras, glowlights, Neons or Harliequin Rasboras, have kept them with Lemon tetras too. I would try to avoid keeping him with really active fish, it can stress them out a bit.
