Very small fish, especially livebearer fry, might get eaten. I would also avoid other anabantids and generally flashy looking fish (like male guppies) as these might get picked on.

How big is your tank? Blue gouramis can get pretty large.

I think with the Platy, Molly, Cherry Barb AND Blue Gourami's assuming you have nothing else in the 35g its kinda stretching the limitations there.

What about a honey gourami? They're generally better community residents and don't grow as large as blue gouramis.
