Hello! As the title implies, I'm not sure if Dwarf Gouramis are harder than any other fish? I bought one last week, and died off the next day and I'm not sure how. Another week later I bought a the red variation hoping for some luck, but the same thing died the following day. I'm getting quite worried. should the tank not be suitable for Dwarf gouramis, are there other small alternatives? 200 gallon cubic tank Temp: 79 Degrees F pH: 7.0 Aquarium is 60% decorated/planted with lots of hiding spots. Stocklist: 3 Angelfish 2 Discus 1 Golden Sev 1 Festivum Cichlid 1 Uaru Cichlid 6 German blue/Electric blue/Golden Rams (Mixed) 1 Bolivian Ram 10 Black skirt tetras 10 Silvertip Tetras 3 Torpedo barbs 10 Assorted cory cats 1 featherfin Catfish Yes. I love SA cichlids with a burning passion.
