    So I just realized I posted this in the wrong place so I'm trying it again here in the right place!! So as of right now I have a 20 gallon fish tank with 2 platies, 3 black skirt tetras and 3 cories (2 spotted, 1 peppered) As a lot of you guys know, I've had really bad luck with the platies and I'm ready to try something new. I love my tetras and cories but I still want something nice and colorful in my tank. I was thinking maybe a dwarf gourami? Would that be okay with what I have already? Any other suggestions would be awesome!!! Also I have a ph of anywhere between 7.4 and 7.8 if that helps with ideas!!! Thanks guys!!!

    You really, really should fill out the schools before you consider getting anything new. You need at least 5 tetras and 5 of each cory species.
