Not all gouramis have the same temperament as bettas do. Sparkling, honey, licorice, chocolate and samurais are fine.

Well, i probably plan on a male and female pair as it is (gouramis), and yes my betta will be moved.
Sadly though, my female betta just took a turn for the worse. She is old, and she just passed away =[.

Well, if I got those, what else do you think I could get in there?
Im affraid of over populating the tank, so I want to be careful.

Cories, when kept alone or in small groups like that, are often not seen and hide. They are shoaling fish and need company.

Hmm... That would be cool. But I dont want to many bottom fish fighting over space, seeingas I have a djojo, pictus and a Cory, and I want 3-4 kili loaches. How many Cories should I get so its not cramped for space at the bottom?

I say cories in no less than 4. That is the bare minimum IMO. 6 is better.

Maybe Cory's arent right for this tank? I really dont want to over crowd. I have one cory and it does fine on its own. Swims around the whole tank, isnt shy at all. Would 4-6 corys fit in the tank with the others I want to get?

I think it would be better if you only had one of the shoaling bottom-dwellers, and then like your Pictus or a pleco, or something similar, as another.

If it was my tank, and using your ideas, then...

-4/6 Kuhliis
-Your Pictus?
-Cardinals
-Harlies

etc
