    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.

    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.
