    Hi All!

    I'm setting up a new tank with either kissing or dwarf gouramis. Plant wise I was thinking either java fern, amazon sword or anubias. Will my gouramis shred my plants or do anything to harm them.

    Side note: I'm thinking of putting silver tip tetras with my gouramis but can anyone suggest any other compatible tank mates?

    Thanks guys :)

    Here is a link that shows how big kissing Gouramis can get. You need a large tank :)

    If you meant multiple Gouramis, here is a list of some sociable Gouramis, dwarf Gourami are not among them:
    Honey Gouramis
    Thick-lipped Gouramis
    Pearl Gourami

    Harlequin rasbora would go nicely with them.

    All depends on the size of your aquarium.

    I have a 3 spot in a planted 55, doesn't really bother the java fern, he does like to nibble on the java moss and crypts. And take a break in the hornwort.
