Clown loaches will never be compatible with smaller species of gouramis. Pls note that clowns aren't your ordinary 5-inches loaches. They grow far too large for an average private aquarium. As 12-16 inches, they live very long(often 40 years) and are often victimized to being stunted because most people keep them in tanks of 10 gallons and even lower.

Try Botia kubotai, Botia striata or Botia sidthimunki.:) The third one is the most expensive as it is not common to see them in pet stores these days. Heaven knows my search for them prove too futile.
