Gourami compatibility

I was thinking of getting a Dwarf and a Paradise gourami. My lfs said they could do well together so I bought them. After 2 days they seem to be doing quite well. Would it be a bad idea to add a Blue Powder with them? Or how about Blood or Fire gourami?

Thanks

gouramis

I have had great success with gouramis, giant danios, tiger barbs and rainbows all in one tank. The gouramis are dwarf - flame and powder blue. Regular - opalescent, pearl, gold, and pink kissing. I even keep a betta with them and all is well.

Could I ask the size of your tank? I'd be a little bit worried about the paradise gourami. They're usually alright when they are young, but can become quite aggressive and territorial when they get older. The dwarf on the other hand should be fine. They're usually fairly retiring species, although they can be aggressive towards other males, especially during breeding. However, since you've only got one, I wouldn't anticipate any problems. I could recommend more species to add once I know the size of your tank.

It's a 20 high. The Paradise is slightly bigger than the Dwarf which the lfs told me was adult.

On a side note..the Paradise is awesome, what a beautiful fish. It already eats from my fingers!
