i am sure there will be others that will have more knowledge then I do about species mixing but I can tell you that I have a Gourami and Platy's together they do fine. I was told they would be fine with Cory's as well. My concern however, would be adding Guppies as the Platys can be a bit nippy and sassy. My Gourmi is pretty big and dominant so she is holding her own and then some. Also, I learned the hard way but 1 Gourami per tank. In a smaller tank, I would keep it to a dwarf Gourami.

I have a Blue Gourami and she is already almost 5 inches and growing. They need some swimming room so... maybe a dwarf would be best. I believe their are species that stay in the 2-3 inch size which would be nice. Check out the Dwarf Flame Gourami. Gorgeous!

Also, you can check out the fish profiles in the blue bar at the top. Click on Tropical Fish profiles then you can see many options, what their requirements are and whether or not they will get along and what they need for set up.

i like the sound of your stock list
i don't think there is much difference in the care requirements of the gouramis you mentioned, just pick the one you like best :)
what kind of corys are you going to get? :D (i'm a bit of a cory fanatic...)

i'm not sure, i think they're about the same, but the honey gourami is a bit smaller i think.
i wanted a honey gourami at one point, but ended up getting my golden instead and i absolutely adore her
never heard of corydoras leucomelas (i've just found out thats how its spelt) but i googled them and they are very nice looking. i wonder what the availability of those corys are? often corys are wrongly identified in stores because the species all look so similar. you probably need to check what your store stocks...

oops posts out of sync! :P
the size difference is pretty small according to everything i've ever read. dwarf gouramis can be kept in 18 inch tanks according to one of my reference books, so it should be fine in a 94 liter :)
