Well all the help is appreciated, I believe I have 1 male and 2 female gouramis. With the neons could I get 3 black neon and 4 neon and them still be happy or do they have to be the same color? Also I have heard that neons can be hard to keep alive, does the same thing apply to the black neons or are they hardier?

From what I've read, black neons are generally much hardier than regular neons. They aren't the same species though, so I doubt they would school. You're better off going all regular or all black. Personally, I think the black ones look a lot better.

Man it's a tough decision, all my fish are already black and white. My plants have more color lol. I like both types of neons so this makes it all the more harder.

OK, this thread is nothing like what I expected it to be from the subject.

Another feature to check for when sexing paradise fish is the girth. The females are notably plumper around the middle.

Keep in mind that paradise gourami are technically sub-tropical fish and should be kept at lower temperatures than the tank mates you are naming...

Well all the fish are in and appear happy enough. Next to the cories, neons, and gouramis I also got a couple ottos. I can't really do much about the heat it goes up to ~82 during the day so I have the heater set at ~80 so it doesn't drop to much at night. But I didn't realize they were sub-tropical. Every time I get fish I always forget to research something, them being sub-tropical would never have crossed my mind
