I think you may have mistaken the species; pygmy cory and sparkling gourami are mentioned in this thread, and they are both OK in a 5g. which I did mention in the respective profile. The larger (average) cory or gourami species, definitely not. Just to clarify.

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]

Sorry I haven't been posting very much in this thread my keyboard broke a few days ago.

I just wanted to thank everyone again for all the help and information though. The 5g tank I was talking about original housed a beta who decided to jump out of the tank and when found was still alive but died the following day I decided to just go with another beta because I really like them. I'm still planning on a possible nano tank though in the near future but it will be in a 10g instead. Just don't feel ready to go making purchases yet still want to do some more research. Thanks again everyone
