woah...definitely dont buy fish at your lfs! and yes, make sure the fish you do buy look healthy. if they are acting in any way abnormally dont buy them. i hope you manage to find some good quality fish. it might be worth going a little out of your way to find a good store...after all if you get them locally and then they all die its useless isn't it?
the tanks in my local pet shop arent tiny, they just dont' know how to look after fish. their guppies look alright, but other than that nearly every tank has dead fish in it. i often consider 'rescuing' fish in situations like that, but thats not a good idea if you can't accomodate them...

i still wouldn't trust fish from that store even if those tanks look ok. clearly they dont know what they're doing...but if it's the only option i guess it's ok considering that those are the fish you are looking at getting :)

Just FYI, I've kept 3 Gouramis (2x Blue 1x Gold) in a 30g for 5 years (yeah, old Gouramis xD) and they get along fine. They have a really strict social order though.

fyi means for your information :)
also i think the tanks you mentioned (50 or 90 liters or whatever it was) are too small for more than one gourami. but i'll leave that to someone else to determine

I agree, one gourami (of these "large" species like Blue/gold) is it for a 15g or 25g tank, and the 25g would be best of the two. These fish grow to nearly 6 inches and finding suitable tankmates in a small tank is impossible. Please read the profile of this fish:

Any chance of merging a couple of this guy's topics? They're all VERY similar. o.o
