Adding more to my tank
 
Is it possible to fit two gouramis in my 5 gal?
& Is it possible a dwarf gourami getting along with my mustard gas-betta?[/code]

Only one gourami in answer to your first question. Only one species in answer to your second question. Male anabantids are aggressive towards each other.

I agree with Lupin. A 5 gallon is too small for 2 Gouramis. They would not be happy. I would not put a Betta with a Gourami. Gouramis & Bettas both are best kept with fairly peaceful community fish like neons, white clouds, danios, catfish. Not very exciting I know but that's the way it goes.

I've heard they are ok with Angelfish but I would say you need a larger tank for an Angel and a Gourami. Dwarf Gouramis are a fish that should be kept in groups of 3 or more, so keep that in mind too.
