So I did plently of research and decided to get pearl gouramis for my community tank as they are the most peaceful and beautiful centerpiece fish in my opinion.
BUT when I got to the fish store there was only one left and I wanted 6 total... the store owner assured me that the gold and blue gouramis that the pearl was kept with were also very peaceful and they would all be fine.
Here is what I have in my tank now:
1x pearl gouramis
2x gold gouramis
2x blue gouramis
7x harlequin raspboras
7x rummynose tetra
6x emerald green cory
It's a 55gallon well planted tank with large rocks stacked to make hiding places...
Here's my question... Am I a sucker for listening to a store owner who just really wanted to sell me the blue/gold gouramis, or will they really be ok in the tank?
I am thinking about bringing them back next week and adding 5 pearl gouramis to join the one pearl in the tank.... but if anyone has kept gold/blue gouramis in a similar setting successfully I may just leave it the way it is (I will be getting one more pearl regardless so that he/she doesn't get lonely!)
Fire your opinions at me please!
