Dwarf Gouramis and German Blue Ram Cichlids in a 10 gallon?

Hello again!

Since Plagueis is nearing the end of his life ( :( ) I was looking at other fish to occupy my tank. I came across the two in my title - now, can I put two (one of each) in my 10 gallon tank?

You could, but how long it will work for is impossible to determine. A 10 gallon is a really small tank.

Oh, so it might just mess up in the end? Both are known as peaceful fish, and they don't grow large, so..

Dwarf gouramis aren't exactly peaceful. If you had a 20 gallon then that would work fine, but a 10 is small, and stress can easily turn otherwise peaceful fish aggressive. Soooo your tank is too small

You could go with one male dwarf gourami in the 10 gallon.

I had one in a 9 gallon and he was a prefect fit! I would spend more money on live plants and driftwood and make it look super natural then other fish that wouldnt be compatible..

You could go with a single male blue ram, but im not sure how much his colours would show since he wouldnt have a female to show off too.

Personally, I wouldn't keep a DG in less than 15 gallons, and a ram is less than 20. If you are going to go for just one, I'd go for the DG. However, a betta would be much better suited for it. :)

One could keep a single ram in a 10 if they wanted. They are not very big nor very active. A group of really small tetras like embers might work with it.... Or they might get eaten.
