Stocking 10 gallon Tank
 
OK. I'm planning on getting a 10 gallon tank for my gouramis.
I have a dwarf gourami, and a honey gourami. I know they aren't reccomended together, but I didn't know that when I bought them. They have been together for about two weeks, and they are actually best friends. They stick together, and follow eachother around. They sleep next to eachother etc..
So I think they will be fine in the 10 gallon tank together. But I want to know what else I could add with them. I was thinking some panda corys and some platys. If not would the pygmy corys be better?

Would love some opinions!

Your tank is too small for panda's, you could get dwarf cory's (you can look in the profiles for these fish). You may want to look at Endler's they are really colorful and pretty and easy to keep and small, so they would work. I don't think your dwarf Gourami's would try to eat them, but check into that, if you like the fish. I've been thinking of getting a small tank to put Endler's in. They are in the guppy family so you want to make sure you get only males or you'll have lots of babies.
