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

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