I'd get a ram. Either Bolivian or Blue :D The Bolivians tend to be a bit hardier as the Blues have a lot of the same industry issues as the Dwarf gourami.

As a single fish *not* a pair, it won't be too territorial and they're very smart, interesting fish. He'll be a tad on the aggressive side, but the platies can take care of themselves, and the ram will help with any overstocking issues related to the platies excessive breeding. I keep mine in a community tank with some very docile fish and he doesn't give me any trouble at all.

Here's some stuff on cycling:
