Could I keep a dwarf gourami and a betta together or will they fight with each other?

DONT!!! They fight each other.I once saw a betta at petsmart with 30 gouramis. Fins ripped, flaring and stressed! I screamed at the employee and told her to take it out. She said later and I showed her what was happening and she took it out right away. DO NOT

Still wouldn't risk it, if they met each other could not be fun.

Yeah I wouldn’t recommend it. I have seen them kept together in a pet store before but the Bettas fins were all tattered and it didn’t look good at all

2 male betta
13 girl betta
12 glowlight tetras
9 emerald cories
1 pleco.
I had a dwarf gouromI for a short time but he just didn't seem like a good fit.

****, that's cool! Heavily planted I bet?

Out of curiosity, is it a female betta? And what sized tank?

It’s a male betta and it’s 190 litre tank

Bettas and Gouramis are both from the suborder 'Anabantoidei' - putting them together would effectively be the equivalent of putting two Bettas together.
