The gouramis are in a 30 gallon tank, and I've had them since August. For a few days it was a constant battle between the blue & gold. Both are male, and I suspect, by sheer size, Goldie is the dominant one. Even though he constantly runs the blue, they Do co-exist, but I'm not sure that the Dwarf can constantly tolerate it. Either way, Petco will let me return it tomorrow, so that's the likely result. Thanks again for the advise, it's totally appreciated.

Yea, that's too small for both species of gourami. The dwarf male is another species so is an even bigger target for the opaline gouramis. I'd probably just return the dwarf gourami, he isn't a good fit for either tank.

taking a break from fish-keeping.
3 lovely male betta still keep me company.
