Knowing your water parameters will help us suggest suitable fish. Also, if you check our profile of the Blue Gourami [this is actually the same species, there are several different varieties] it suggests suitable tankmates. Click the shaded name to see the profile.
Edit: After posting, I noticed a second thread on this same issue, so I have combined them to keep everyone's responses together.
I would not recommend Tiger Barb with any gourami, ever. While some may "get along" as Amanda's appear to be doing, this is not the ordinary. TB are by nature quite feisty and more aggressive than most other barb species. The long fins of the sedate blue gourami are too much of a temptation. "Peaceful" barb such as the Black Ruby Barb [this closely resembles the Tiger in pattern but is more colourful] or the Cherry Barb should work better. The tank setup is important, as the environment can often determine the fish's behaviour.
