I accidentally purchased a kissing gourami i from an assorted community fish tank and idk what to do with him. Can anyone with experience with these fish help me out. My stock is 3 guppies, 2 platys, 3 Cory cats, a balloon Molly and some glass shrimp. My tank is heavily planted. Right now he seems pretty peaceful but he must be young he’s only about an inch or 2. He’s a a 20g for now but I plan on moving him to a bigger tank when I move in July. Can someone please let me know what the think.

ah okay! They do get very big. Around a foot I think. So you'll definitely want a bigger tank. As far as being tank mates with livebearers, right now i imagine he might be okay, but when he's full grown, he'd probably eat them lol

Also be advised that when they "kiss" it's actually a form of aggression. Although they typically and mostly do that to other kissing gouramis, they sometimes can relentlessly chase down other fish, stress 'em out and sometimes in the worst case, kill 'em. Do be wary ok?
