gouramis and bettas together is never a good idea. they are from the same family and will likely attack/try to kill each other.keeperofmanyponds said:Hey guys, I am really struggling right now with a decision, the sparkling gourami sounds like a fantastic idea but I have no idea how they will get along with the betta, but, he is a dumbo ear so he could be so slow and tire of chasing them. Do you know if there is any way they could get along?
They seem really hardy too.
