Just wanted to mention that a King Betta and a Giant Betta are different. Kings do not get as large at the Giant Bettas.

I found this for you.

In the 'Aquarium requirements' it states that "Dwarf gouramis are so docile that they will allow themselves to be bullied to death before fighting back. Male siamese fighting fish may attack dwarf gouramis and should be avoided."

And before I read this page, I had been reading about regular Gourami. It stated that they are more aggressive then the Dwarf kind and will fight and even kill smaller or long tailed fish. But I figure, since your mail Gourami is shy, he's a Dwarf.

But this might not happen all the time. I've heard of Betta's being put in community tanks with various other fish, including other Betta.
So just be careful if you go ahead with it. :)

I love my King, Ty. He's so much more laid back & shy compared to my other males. He started out over the summer just under 3 inches and has grown to over 4. He does eat whatever is in front of him, but I try and be careful not to overfeed since I've heard they can have tummy troubles. Someone told me if he's over 4 inches, he could be considered a giant, but I'm not sure. He was in bad shape at the store, but in his nice big tank, with places to hide-he's a happy guy!
