Oh no. Kissing Gouramis will definitely outgrow that tank. They need a lot of room. And I'm not sure if I can say this about all Kissing Gouramis, but the one my dad has is a mean bugger!

So true kissing gouramis get way too big for a 10g tank, these guys need at the very least 125-150 tank and its not fair to them to put them in a 10g even if they are small right now, they should reach 7-8 in with 12-18 months....and you should not mix two anabantoid anyway....
