Will Moonlight gouramis eat neons?

Will moonlight gouramis eat neons? Or is it reasonably safe to keep them together?

75 g. planted peaceful community of denison barbs, cories, neons, boesemani and turquoise rainbowfish, pearl gourami, ancistrus

35 g. long semi-aggressive community of mature m. lacustris, diamond tetras, golden gourami

36 g. bow with pagai praecox and kamaka rainbowfish.

3 pico planted tanks with bettas and nerites.

It is safe. Moonlights are one of the most peaceful gouramis, just keep it well fed and you will be fine.

Just to note, don't overfeed to keep him from eating neons. The chances are slim that he will, don't worry.

Well there is a difference between dwarfs and moonlights. Dwarfs get 2 inches,moonlights get 4-5+ inches.

They still won't eat a neon, however. I think that was just a general statement about the passivity of gourami.

Thanks! I don't have a moonlight yet, and I probably won't be getting one unless I find out that it is okay to put one in with my pearl. I like them both a lot, but only have one big tank.
