Tapajos in there and when i put the gouramis in they were doing the cichlid-like fin flare dance to see who was boss, but in the morning i woke up to the geo furiously chasing the gouramis :( I put him in the sump for now which is actually good for him since he likes sifting through sand. Anywho.. i wanted gouramis before but seeing them doing well in your tank definitely influenced my decision. best wishes to u, the queen, and co. :)

That's cute that you were inspired to get Gourami after seeing my tank. They do tend to make excellent tank mates for the smaller species because it's just such an awkward mouthful even for a predator like a bichir.
That said ouch...sucks that that didn't work out with the Geo. At least you were able to remove him and find him a good spot to be in.

I didn't even know they had them till I saw them on Queen and went D: wat is on my beautiful fish?!?! And yesh...they are all so very adawwable.
