I have a 45 gal. tall that's almost two months running. Most of the fish I want are schooling, so I'd like one "specimen" fish who's a little larger than the rummy-noses I already have. I just got a (hopefully) female gold gourami to fill this role, but now I'm reading that they should be kept in multiples.

Anybody have ideas on a fish that's happy without same-species tank mates?

Thanks!

You could do a DG, honey, pearl (maybe) gourami, krib, gernan blue ram, Bolivian ram. .

Bettas aren't generally recommended with community tanks. It can be done, but often bettas attack other fish.

I second a dwarf gourami! They're quite happy by themselves.
