Depending on how many live plants you put, you may not need to cycle.
Bronze cories are a lil big for a 10 gallon. But do 4-5 anyways, since you already have some, with or without gourami. Floor space is the big thing with cories.
The D.G. can work in a 10 gallon, but they are active little buggers and do enjoy some space. While it will work out fine, if you want to consider a honey gourami it may be better, they are more sedate than the dwarfs.
Without cories but with a gourami.. hmm that's a toughie. Do you like livebearers like platy or endlers? Or some x-ray tetra perhaps, a couple of cherry barbs (little bit of a tight squeeze). You could try a different bottom dweller, kuhli loaches.
taking a break from fish-keeping.
3 lovely male betta still keep me company.
