    I’m looking at getting either a powder blue or a dwarf red flame gourami or both in my tank but I’m wondering if they will bully my marbled hatchetfish

    Not very likely, but I would avoid dwarfs completely. They're poorly bred in bad conditions so basically all of them have iridovirus/dwarf gourami disease. You're lucky to get half their lifespan out of them really.
    Honey or Pearl gouramis would be a great substitute though.

    +1 on honey gouramis, but I wouldn't bet my money on pearls.

    I got honey gouramis as a replacement for my dwarf gouramis that kept getting the same virus. I love the honeys they will be a great substitute and will not bully.
