    I'm new to the aquarium world and would like recommendations for 130 litre fish to put in an easy tank. Thanks

    Gouramis, Molly's, platty, guppy, bettas, Cory's....there are many options :) will the tank be heated?

    Well tell us a little more...will it be planted? Do you know of the nitrogen cycle? Any fish you've seen that you like?

    Yes you could definitely do a dwarf gourami in a tank that size. Though two is usually not recommended as the males are very territorial and will probably fight to the death. You could do something like:
    1 dwarf gourami
    6-8 corys (bronze, pepper, panda, many to choose from :) )
    Pick a small schooling fish, like neons for example and get 12 - 15 of those

    Guppys, danios, rasboras, different tetra species... there are many. If you find one you like just check back with us as to how many you should get, temperature compatibility etc! :) just go on Google images and search for small schooling fish

    Chili Rasboras are really neat, and they look cool in large groups.
    I recommend Peacock Gudgeons for centerpieces.
