"Centerpiece" Fish to go with Rasboras

When I have a community tank, I have decided on schools of Harlequin Rasboras and Corys. People on here have told me that a small Gourami would be a good choice, but I was wondering what the other options are (if any).

That would make sense. Haven't you heard? We make yogurt, not sense.

Haha, I'd have to suggest a gourami too! That was the first thing suggested to me but I just ignored it for whatever reason... tried some German Blue rams, which can work but they aren't easy to keep. Bolivian Rams are easier to keep and could be a center piece fish too.. but when my last ram passed, I got a dwarf gourami and fell in love. It's very peaceful and beautiful. The coloring reminds me kinda of a discus.

Thank you everyone. I'll definitely go with one of those Rams or Gourami. If anyone else has suggestions, feel free to share!!!

Mention isn't made of tank size (from another thread, I'm thinking this is a 20g or 29g ??). A single Bolivian Ram is fine in a 29g but I wouldn't in the 20g. A bonded pair of Blue Ram would work in a 29g or a 20g, but they need a higher temp than most corys tolerate long-term. Bolivian is fine at basic temps in upper 70's F. The Honey gourami is fine in either tank, a trio would be best, one male and two female. Check the profiles, click the shaded names.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
