Given the size of the killies I would put them in the larger tank, with the gourami in this case. The 10g will accommodate a group of Nannostomus marginatus, I would get 9-10. Lots of plants, and some chunks of wood. Branches are ideal, this species loves browsing over wood for microscopic food. Some small peaceful substrate fish will match, one of the dwarf species of cory, or even a group of 4-5 of a nice "normal" cory. A single Twig Catfish, or a Whiptail Catfish will also work.

This is basically the same question as your previous post, and I responded. But here you mention a 15g, not a 10g...the 15g is even better for the pencils and substrate fish.

Nannostomus marginatus is the Dwarf Pencilfish in our profiles. And you know you can click the shaded names to see the profile.
