    I am a former aquarist who is just getting back into the game after many years. I am in the process of setting-up a 72 gallon tank. I am about 2-weeks into the process, so it has not fully cycled. The tank is heavily planted, in addition to some wood & interesting rocks. I started with 6 zebra danios, which certainly add comic relief. I have recently added 5 male dwarf gouramis (they are so beautiful!). I was going to finish the tank off with some cardinal tetras and a cleaning crew after 4-5 weeks. It is hard to ask a fishes opinion. Will these male gouramis live long & happy lives without females? Is the gourami/gallon ratio OK.

    i don't think there is anything wrong with that i have 8 dwarf gouramis[different colors] and some other types of gouramis also.they don't bother each other very much.
