A 20 gall might be a bit small for pearl gourami as they can grow quite large.
Good luck!
Oh no.. actually with that wording it is correct. They are good community fish.. I have 2 in my 75 with angels a clown pleco and my beloved bichir. They do great in there. In fact I really enjoy them..but as many here know I do tend to love mean fishies . They don't bother the other fish. Really it's hilarious watching them build nests with plants then snatching the other DGs plants and swimming off like he stole a pot of gold haha. They are great fish IMO ..just need to be careful with more then one taking into account tank size

How about a tank with some Neons - colorful, active, and peaceful!

Matthew 22:37-39
37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’[a] 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’[b]

Thanks jimscott... do you mean Neon DGs, or some other neon (e.g. Tetras)?
