If you have the larger tank now, fine. If not, I would not take the risk. Someone gave me a maxim some time back which I have always followed: I never acquire any fish for which I do not now (at the time of acquisition) have a tank running that will accomodate the fish at its maturity. Many of us think we will get a newélarger tank, but circumstances can change and the poor fish is the loser.
And, these are fish that should have a group, and as the profile mentions, they can get nasty as they grow which fish do continually. The present 30g will barely suit the fish now, so I would not.
There are many lovely gourami to choose from that would manage fine in a 30g. Several are in our profiles.
