fishlover357 I have sparkling gouramis with guppies and they don't bother with one another, as the guppies love swimming about and the gouramis love cover, so it's a peaceful combination.

I was wondering if I could have 3 guppies and dwarf gouramI together. Does anyone have experience with this?
When I kept my Dwarf with Guppies nipped at their fins until I separated them. That was in a 33 gallon :)

Now I get none of that as my gouramis like keeping to the false plants :)
Dwarf GouramI are very different to Sparklers 3 x the size for one :hilarious:

I would recommend a honey gouramI instead of a dwarf! They stay smaller and are generally more peaceful.

The only commonly kept GouramI I’d keep in a 10 is the Sparkling Gourami. Dwarf GouramI are too big and active and Honey’s should be kept in at least a pair but a group is preferable, a 10 is too small imo.
