New 56G tank set up - is this still enough for gouramis

Hi all
Just in process of setting up new tank. Would like peaceful tank and am thinking of 2 pearl gouramis as main fish - but reading they like really still water.

Have posted video on youtube showing my tank. Is it still enough?



Sorry I don't know how to embed youtube on here yet.

Mine do well in a higher current environment - you have nothing to worry about. I'd get at least a trio.

Thanks jaysee. Do I need to get 2 females to 1 male? I am presuming 2 boys will try to out compete each other?

Unless you are going to keep a larger group, I would just get one male. I am going to be adding a second male to my group very soon, to make 2M/4F. I'm not expecting a problem...

1 male and 2 females would be better.
