    I am soon going to be getting a dwarf gourami, and I was wondering what I should get to put in the tank with it?

    It depends on tank size.

    Also, I would stay away from dwarf gouramis.
    Virtually all of them have idirovirus which will kill them and there is no cure.

    That would depend alot on tank size.

    Are all dwarf gouramis really destined to have disease?

    I wouldn't add the DG.

    They need a 20 long minimum IMO and labyrinth fish do not get along well.

    BTW I would take out the betta.

    Most of them are.

    It's due to their breeding farm conditions.

    A 10 gal is still too small for a dwarf gourami.

    I wouldn't avoid all DGs - not all are sick, and they can't give that sickness to your other fish anyway. If you can get them from a high quality source (i.e. not Petco or Petsmart), then go for it.
