New fish?

In a ten gallon tank with hang on Marineland power filter, lots of plants and currently 4 white clouds and 3 cories; would a dwarf gourami be too much as final fish for the tank? The current fish all seem to have reached full size and give me about 9" of fish so I know I may be pushing it, I thought the heavy filter rate (100gph) and plants might help.

I am not sure a gourami is the best choice because pf the chance it could get aggressive. I don't know about dwarfs for certain but if it decides to become territorial, your white clouds could be in for some fin destruction.

I definitely do not want to be in that situation again; I had originally tried a betta as the solo fish and he went after the white clouds and the cories. He is his own small tank now. I'm open to other suggestions for a solo fish if anyone has any thoughts, I just know size will be an issue.

Honey Gourami - Colisa chuna. Stays a little smaller than the Dwarf (Colisa lalia), isn't mass produced so not as liable to disease, and not as aggressive.
