I just read somewhere that dwarf gourami's need to be in groups of 5, is that true? Should I get 3 more? Or should just 2 be Ok? Cause I'm buying a 5 gallon today and it happens to come with 1 gourami, and I'm not sure if I should put it in the 29 gallon or the 45.

Plecos need 75 gallons because they grow to 2 feet, so I think you already overstocked your tank.

I have a bristlenose pleco actually, which only get about 4-6 inches, so it's fine.

Should I get a rams horn or merited snail? Or is the pleco good for the cleaning, along with the 5 RCS? Any other fish I could add? I couldn't find any endlers at the store, would that be a more lfs type thing than a chain store?

What about flame tetra? I could get a school of maybe 6? Or do they need more? Most the conditions are fine, just the hardness is too high.
