    In a planted 25 gallon with 4 or 5 mollies/ platies all female and 3 corys, how many male dwarf gouramis can i put in? and if only one then any suggestions on other fish?

    I would do platies instead of molly so you could stock it like this.
    4 platies
    6 corys
    1 dg
    10 schooling fish.
    im not sure if the dg would get aggressive with the platies...

    Thanks but i already have the mollies and platies.. Just looking for some tank mates and i wanted a gourmai but the males are way better looking

    Definitely only one male. I have a male DG and he is perfectly peaceful with small schooling fish, but goes crazy with other territorial fish. If you want multiple gouramis, have a look at honey gouramis - there are several beautiful colour variants.
