Question Dwarf Gourami


I was wondering whether a Dwarf Gourami could be kept with my Betta in a 60 gall? I was also wondering if i bought a Cichlid as a fry if it would end up being okay with my Neons and my Betta? I know they both might be a long shot, but i was just looking for another bigger fish to be a tank mate and not just a load of smaller ones.

I am sorry to be the bearer of bad news but neither of those are a good idea. The Gourami and the betta would be more than like fight and the chiclid when he gets big could kill both of the others if I am not mistaken. It does not matter that they grow up together it is in there genes and you can not change that.

Kindest Regards,

Keeping fish its not a hobby it is a passion!

55 gallon, 44 gallon, one 20 gallon tank, three 10 gallon tanks, and a 2.5 gallon all with real plants.

I have MTS and there is no cure.

Yeah, I kind of expected that answer, i just thought because there is so much room it may not be so much of a problem.
