If you checked the profile of this fish, you would find the answer to your question. And the photo there shows a pair to illustrate the difference between male/female.

And on combining gourami, it depends upon the species. Basically, the larger more common gourami should be on their own in largish tanks. The rarer small gourami like the pygmy sparkling, licorice, eyespot, etc. can be together in a large enough tank, and in groups always. This too is all in the profiles.
