What type of Gourami to add

    Seeking some thoughts by members on what type of Gourami to add to my tank.
    Currently have a 220L (60g-ish) heavily planted with bacopa, swords, blue stricta and floating wisteria and duckweed.

    Current stocking is 10 widow tetra, 5 swordtails, 2 Angelfish (medium sized), 1 Rainbow shark, 1 bristlenose pleco.

    Current water parameters pH 7.4, ammonia 0, nitrite 0, Nitrate 10-20.

    I recently lost a dwarf gourami to old age but would like 1 or 2 bigger gouramis than the dwarf variety.

    I'm considering a pair of pearl gourami' but would like something with a bit more colour.
    I'm not sure how a blue gourami and a gold gourami would go together.

    Thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated

    I've never seen a banded gourami in the stores around me.

    How would mixing a m/f pair of pearl gouramis with a gold gourami and blue gourami go??

    That's a bad idea, you would need a way larger tank tank a 60 gallon for more than a pair of gourami.

    The m/f pair would work, or a single of any, but you don't want a non m/f pair of two different kinds. It usually ends bad. It can turn out alright, but that is far less likely

    Kissers get to big for a 60 gallon. A pair of pearls or a pair of moonlights is what I would go with.

    Thanks guys.

    I might just stick to a single blue or gold gourami. Looking to add more colour to the tank.
