Thanks I was thinking 1 m 2 f for the pearls and for honeys I was under impression that it didn’t matter but I’ll do 2 m 3 f. I thought that these Gouramis weren’t aggressive, have you had aggressive behaviour?
Another question about the cycling - if I put in bb from my lfs (via a filter cartridge I think..?) how do I know when my cycle is done? Do I have to add it after my cycle?
Depends on how you're cycling it I believe. I cycled both of my tanks with Dr Tims. I just add 2ppm ammonia every time it drops to 0ppm ammonia and 0ppm nitrite. Once it drops that in 24 hours 50% water change and I'm good to go.
