I have never seen a female dwarf gourami either. The fish farms figur the males look nicer so they sell them and they keep the females to add to their breeding stock. I have only seen female dwarf gouramis for sale online.

you could get 5 neon tetras but as some may say this would be over stocking i think it would work fine just aslong as you maintained the water and had frequent water changes, a male sailfin molly might also be an option but thats your prefrence on what kind of fish you want

Actually, the young fish are injected with hormones which make them all male. The males look better and thus sell better.

I have seen female dwarf gouramis at one of my LFS but I guess it's pretty rare.
