8 Mosquito Rasboras
4 Julii Corys
I understand that these are pretty good community fish but I am worried as to whether or not these tiny shoaling fish will work well with the Gourami? (Do I need a pair of Gouramis or will one alone work?) I think I have the tank stocked adequately from top to bottom, but I was wondering if anyone could think of any better options--I am really open to suggestions! I want a fairly easy to care for, diverse (and brightly colored if possible) tank. Thanks!
I would were it me,,go with the honey gourami and stocking would be ok in my view so long as water was not too hard GH ,KH.
Would stay clear of Variant's of Colisa Ialia such as Flame red,Neon Red,Neon Blue, Powder blue. Colisa Ialia are pone to Iridovirus , Mycobacterium, and could infect some other species.
Is said to be untreatable.
Honey Gourami will stay small and be fine by itself and does not seem affected by afore mentioned virus.
