It would be nice because cories are bottom fish, sometimes swimming in the middle for a second and darting up and down the glass. While the gourami would be in the middle and top.
Just a note, cories are shoaling fish, so you are looking into around 6, thats why cories and zebras would be pushing it a little.
Cories also need a very fine smooth substrate, like sand because of their delicate barbels. The gourami and zebras would be nice too because the zebras school, however you tank would be very busy because they dont stop and move all over the tank. I personally prefer a more peaceful look with the cories rummaging around the bottom.
It sounds lovely!
I am highly considering what you suggested
but first, one question:
so far my tank's water temperature has been fluctuating from 60~80+ Farenheit, I've ordered a heater (Marineland Stealth 50 Visi-Therm Submersible Aquarium Heater) to stabilize the temperature. Was this a good move for keeping cories? And what temperature would be optimal for them?
Thanks in advance!
