Do you all think these fish (2 Honey Gourami and 5 Platys, all male) are going to get along okay? I didn't have a choice in how to house them..

How large is the tank? I'm not sure if the gouramis will get along if the tank is smaller than 20 gallons

It's 15. ): But it was this or they would have died for sure. All of the fish seem to be just ignoring one another so far, but I'll keep watching.

This week I will get some top cover. What do I do if things do go sour? I don't have another real fish tank to move them to, only a 1g I put my Bettas in when I do their 100% changes.

I can't see why you'd have a problem.

As long as the Gourami don't get territorial, it should be fine, I think.

Thanks for the advice. I've been stressed about it all morning. o-O

Honeys are really peaceful little dudes, I don't think there'd be trouble.

They are territorial fish sometimes so just watch out but they should be fine. The reason I said 20 gallons is because I always understocked my community tanks

Come and get me, 22 fish and 2 frogs in my 20 gallon. It's poifect, I still have room for more. >:D

This is the most unhealthy fish I've ever seen on here. You can tell by its eyes that it's severely stunted, poor dude. Not gonna say anything thought. People.
