This is definitely on the right track. Gourami occur in swamps and still waters thick with vegetation, so you can never have too many plants. And the bubblenest species use floating plants to build their nests.
Floating plants are mandatory, and one of the best is Water Sprite. Its depth of leaves and roots provides lots of cruising ground.
Lower plants can be difficult with thick floating plant cover, so crypts and Java Fern do well planted lower down. These are all in our profiles.
