    Anabantids
    I am getting ready to transfer a betta to a smaller tank, from a 20gal to a 10gal and I'm thinking about adding a Gourami to the 20gal, but I'm curious if there are any that would get along with the platys and bolivian I have in the tank right now.

  2. Bolivian Ram and Invertibrate
