Can dwarf gouramis thrive in a 10g?

I just moved my betta to a spankin' new 5 gallons and my pygmy corys (6 of them) seems so much happier now that he's gone! Still I'd like to add some new fishes in my 10g to take the betta's spot, fishes that wouldn't try to boss the corys around. I researched and I'd really like to add a gourami or 2 in the tank. I wonder if a dwarf one is suitable? I initially wanted sparkling gouramis (more suitable for a small tank, or so I was told) but those are impossible to find here. So, what do you think? would I be overstocked if I added a couple? If so, can dwarf gouramis live well alone? And would they be aggressive to the corys?

No more than one. They are very territorial, and 99% of the ones you see will be males as the females are pumped with hormones that turns them males before they are shipped off.

Okay as long as it's going to be fine alone...where I checked it often says "Prefer to live in pair", I wouldn't want a depressed gourami, no sir!

A pair is one male one female. Good luck finding a female if you really want more than one.

Yes, one male and one female is ideal but good luck finding a female. I've never seen a female DG available.
