    Ok I got my 30 and should be ready to add new fish soon. I plan to stock 2 platys ( already in tank ) either 5-6 zebra danios 6-7 neon tetra 6 corys ( whichever kind is available because they sell out so quick ). I was wondering if danios would nip at gourami..... Or if I would need a centerpiece or any alternatives to danios such as cherry barbs.

    You don't need a centerpiece fish, just some prefer it :) The danios shouldn't nip at the gourami.

    Well, lemme just say that the zebras would be better off in a group of six, so yeah. As for compatibility of those fish, I can't help you there, I'm afraid. :)

    I was just afraid because I have heard like 50/50 on if danios nip or not

    Incomplete schools will cause them to be nippish and skittish, so it's important to have them in proper schools to avoid nipping.

    I had my zebra danios with a dwarf gourami and they didn't nip at all.
