I'm on the verge of stocking my 29 gallon aquarium. The tank is already cycled and will be planted in the near future, but in the meantime, I have a number of questions about the fish I'm thinking of.
I've been looking at different fish both online and at a number of stores, and I find myself attracted to gourami's as a whole.
"They're colorful and beautiful! They're hardy and easy to care for! They don't require huge tanks!" Is what I keep hearing.
There are a lot of websites out there that suggest dwarf gourami as a good, easy to care for fish, and yet I have seen others that state that their popularity has led to mass breeding and possible health problems among the fish. Those sites say that other sorts, such as honey gourami, would be a better choice.
The questions that are really nagging me are these:
-Are Honeys a safer bet than dwarves, as some of these sites say? If not, what sort would be best?
-How many gouramis could my 29 gallon comfortably house, and of what gender?
-Would it be all right to add other kinds of tank mates for them, and if so, what tank mates and how many would be best?
