    Hi PP,

    From what I heard, Gouramies either do well by themselves or in pairs because of aggression issues. That's what I heard and IMO. Wait for other opinions from other members.

    Hello Porcupine. If you're wanting to house two Gourami's in the same tank they should be a male/female pair of the same species. Otherwise you may have severe aggression issues. Even with a pair you may still have aggression problems. I don't normally recommend two per tank.

    You can keep multiples of sparkling or honey gouramis (colisa chuna together; they usually do just fine (assuming the tank is not overstocked.) Though, both of those fish are rather shy and like loads of plant cover. For those types of gourami, it's actually better to have all males or all females because they really only seem to get aggressive when they're spawning. :)
