Javy is right, that is a Blue Gourami. I have a female, and I've had good luck with her in my community tank. She will sometimes chase fish more her size, but never the schooling neons. She sometimes shoos away my Bolivian Ram or rarely one of my female dwarf rainbows, but it's not a very common thing. She has gotten very beautiful, and in a planted tank, they really are very attractive. I think it depends on how big your tank is, and what other fish she'll be in with. I don't think they like to be "intruded" on by others, and like their territory/space. And also, just the personality of the fish can make a difference. I had a male, and he was a complete bully with the female, (they were in a tank all my themselves at that time) and I did give him to my LFS.
