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.
