Question Will this be ok?

Hi all. I have a 20 gal. tank with 6 pygmy cory's and 7 beckford pencilfish. Would love to get one male dwarft gourami. Would this be ok? I know a honey gourami would be. But much rather have the male dwarft gourami. Thank you in advance for your comments.

I think it would be ok. Just remember those dwarf gouramis sometimes are hard to maintain. Good luck

Your tank appears stocked already. Are you planning to get a bigger tank in the near future? If so, they are compatible.

It should be OK....Dwarf Gouramis have had health issues in the last year or so. Most fishkeepers find them difficult.

Ok thank you all. Yes I am getting a 55 gal tank in May. My filter just came today for it. I will go ahead and get a gourami and put him in the QT for a week or so and keep and eye on him. If I see any problems, I can act quickly. Thanks again.

Hi sphenta how adorable to have pygmy cories, I would love to get some but they don't seem to be available here.

Dwarf G. really need pristine water conditions to thrive, which is another reason why I think many are already sick when we buy them. When you do introduce him to the main tank, I would also watch him closely for any signs of aggression towards the other fish.

I was very lucky to get these cory's. My LFS ordered them 5 times and the last time they finally came in. I am good about my water changes and testing my water. So hopefully the Gourami will be ok. (I hope) Yes I sure will watch and make sure there is no troubles between the fishes. Thank you for all the help. Sphenta
