Too Packed?

Would it be cruel to put one male and two female Dwarf Gouramies in ten gallon tank?

Are you talking about 1 male betta and 2 female Dwarf Gouramies? If so space wise its not packed but keep in mind that bettas and gouramis are top tank dwellers, so both species will hover at the top of your aquarium and more than likely you will have some territory issues. I would recommend looking into getting some bottom feeders instead.

I think he is talking about a male DG and two female DG's. It will be too packed for them.

Yes, three gouramies.. I was just wishful thinking I guess... I guess if I really get my male company I'm going to have to tie up a 29 gallon.

A 29 will be perfect for them. :) Just make sure you have lots of fake or real plants. They are really shy, timid fish

I'm still looking for females, but they will need time to acclimate and be conditioned anyway. My boy has cooled down. Storm front coming.. I wonder.

Why would a ten gallon be too small? Aren't they small fish?

They grow to be about 3-4" and they need a place to establish their own territory

I think they're territorial like bettas are.

My local fish guy hasn't even contacted me yet about females and I have drifted away from taking proper care of him. I am going to set up a 29 tomorrow morning for him. He holds his own in a29 now with eight blackskirts that don't bother him, but I can tell he would rather have his real kingdom. Anyone in central Florida want some free mature, healthy well behaved blackskirt tetras? Thank you for caring.
