Smile Freddie and his gouramis friend

Well so far everything is going well. Freddie and his friend just hang out and follow each other round, I have a feeling they all will get along just fine.

Oh boy....it seems I was mistaken on the species of your Gouramis....Those are Golden Gouramis, which are a color variation of the Opaline Gourami, which get VERY aggressive. You'll eventually run into trouble pair in a 20, and then tossing the betta in the mix.....it won't be pretty :/

Its an adorable picture, thats for sure, though I'd consider re-homing those Gourami before they reach maturity and start getting territorial and aggressive...

Gouramis and bettas are from the same family and both are territorial so sooner or later there will be trouble, like DragonFish said.

Hmmm I don't agree with the others. My golden gouramis are scared to death of everything! If you walk by they have literally jumped out of the water, I hear a "plop". They haven't ever hurt anyone in my massive 50 gal community, except chasing themselves. I even have a 5 betta sorority in there too. I would just keep an eye on them if any aggression no matter how small I would divide them.
