Questions about Dwarf Goramis

Hey everyone, I saw some males dwarf gouramis at the LFS and thought that one would look nice in my 29 gallon. I was told that they only get 2" and can be a bit territorial.

I have a few questions.

1. Minimum tank size?
2. Any special needs?
3. I just added some tetras, how long would I have to wait to add a gourami?
4. Here are the occupants of my tank:

1 Common Pleco
1 Zebra Danio
4 Ghost Shrimp
4 Neon Tetras
4 Black Neon Tetras
4 Bloodfin Tetras

Would a gourami be okay with those fish? Is my tank full enough without a gourami?

Anything else would be greatly appreciated.

One 10 Gallon - One White Crayfish
One 15 Gallon - Baby Bullfrogs

I had 3 dwarf blues for about 8 months together in a 29 with other fish. Recently one was killed by something (I'm thinking another of the gouramis). I don't think they require anything special aside from good plant cover or something else to hide in. They will be territorial if they are anything like mine, but mine usually keep to themselves and the only real chasing or anything that occurs is right after feeding when they can see each other swimming out in the open.
