Adding more to my tank

Is it possible to fit two gouramis in my 5 gal?
& Is it possible a dwarf gourami getting along with my mustard gas-betta?[/code]

Only one gourami in answer to your first question. Only one species in answer to your second question. Male anabantids are aggressive towards each other.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

I agree with Lupin. A 5 gallon is too small for 2 Gouramis. They would not be happy. I would not put a Betta with a Gourami. Gouramis & Bettas both are best kept with fairly peaceful community fish like neons, white clouds, danios, catfish. Not very exciting I know but that's the way it goes.

I've heard they are ok with Angelfish but I would say you need a larger tank for an Angel and a Gourami. Dwarf Gouramis are a fish that should be kept in groups of 3 or more, so keep that in mind too.


Pardon the pun, but I'm hooked!
