Yea, they can get 25cm.. That's almost a foot, maybe around 11", my conversions suck. :D

Moonlight gourami stay small enough for you, they are cute!

Kissing gourami have never attracted me, I have to say. They look kind of naked, being all pink like that. Moonlight gouramis are purdy. :)

Life.

Looking through, I think you only have room for a single moonlight gourami anyways.
They are also pretty skittish, I remember you saying your rasbora annoy you because they are skittish.
A lone dwarf or honey would be a more outgoing option.

lol, naked kissing gourami. They have plain silver ones too. I like the way their mouth moves :D

Many of my scaly friends from my original tank from 2011 have passed, except for two! I am in the process of re-doing my tank. :)

Nope! :p They need lot'sa room too.
You're pretty much limited to dwarf, honey, T. vittata, T. pumila, T. fasciata, or T. labiosa. All these species are pretty similar and probably get mixed up names in pet shops.
Profiles included. ;)
Croaking gourami (Trichopsis vittata) - Seriously Fish
Sparkling Gourami (Trichopsis pumila) - Seriously Fish
Banded Gourami (Trichogaster fasciata) - Seriously Fish
Thick-lipped Gourami (Trichogaster labiosa) - Seriously Fish

A good option could also be a pearl gourami, very pretty IMO.
Pearl Gourami (Trichopodus leerii) - Seriously Fish

Opaline gourami is just another name for blue gourami (TFK profile on them). They need a 3-foot or larger tank. Really the only gourami suitable for a 20 gallon tank would be a dwarf gourami or a honey gourami. Dwarfs do come in a powder blue variant, tho.

That is true, but we don't know the length of the tank. I was just getting ready to ask that. Gallons matter, but length matters a great bit, too. I'm guessing it is similar in size to my 29 gal which is 30 inches long, and some of those fish can just barely fit in there.

The tank would be a 26 Gallon .

I do like the honey, dwarf and sparkling. How many sparkling could I fit with 12 rummynoses, and 6 cories? Can they be in groups/pairs?
