Help with Planning tank for Honey Gourami?
I got a honey gourami a few days ago, and she is currently living happily in a 5.5 gallon. I know she is going to be needing a new, bigger tank soon. I was thinking about a 10 gallon tank. If I got a ten gallon tank, cycled and planted, what else could I put with my honey gourami?

Also, I haven't checked my water's pH, GH and KH in a while, I usually just check the ammonia, nitrite and nitrate. I've heard you can look it up on your water supply company's website. Is this the right website, because I can't find what I'm looking for on it, LOL!

You could have a pair of Hioney Gourami in a 10g. Some substrate fish too. Click on the shaded name for info on the species.

I looked at those water quality reports, I can't see any indication of hardness or pH. You may have to contact them.

Over the years I have kept my Honey G. with a shoal of the smaller tetras...either Ember Tetras, glowlights, Neons or Harliequin Rasboras, have kept them with Lemon tetras too. I would try to avoid keeping him with really active fish, it can stress them out a bit.
