I've had dwarf gouramis that were NOT peaceful. They are in the middle- it depends on the individual fish, the environment you put them in, and the other fish. I would say they are a risk - if they work, they are great. But there is a chance they will be on the aggressive side.

Oh god no. He could live with the Gourmai, but the shark needs at LEAST 100 gallons. It is already way overstocked. Are you just growing him out or something?

The Betta would thrive with the Gourmai, but definetly not all 3. Please do not add any other fish until you do something about the shark.

Good luck!

No the betta would NOT thrive with the gourami. As several people have already mentioned gourami and bettas should NEVER be kept together because they are both extremely territorial top dwelling fish.

Some of what these guys said about the shark confuse me. I"m assuming you're talking about these:
http://www.tropical-fish-success.com...ail-shark.html
http://www.fishlore.com/Profiles-RedTailShark.htm

One wouldn't need a 100gallon tank. from what i can find a 55 will do(not you're 20gallon when he grows but it'll work till you get a larger one..better then being cramped with 12 others in a walmart tank :/)

To bad the betta and gourami aren't compatible, but i'm sure you're future betta would love a tank to himself or a ten gallon with some compatible tank mates)

Oops! I thought it was a Bala Shark. Lol! But still its too small. I'd say get at least 60 gallons. 55 for the shark and 10 for the Gourami.
