Just have to say, in case newbies are reading this, most gouramis have to be very carefully chosen for a tank. Larger ones can be very aggressive, along with dwarfs who often cannot be kept with others of their kind in smaller tanks.

Chocolate gouramis and licorice gouramis are extremely sensitive fish who should NOT be kept with other fish. They need a species tank that is very carefully controlled in terms of pH, hardness, etc. If they are kept in a community tank they will not survive long. :no:

well depends guppys are small, and with those tails, FOOD. So I dont suggest u keep dwarfs or honeys wth guppys, But u could try mollies, I know some people have had guppys and dwarfs togethere but right there it must be lucky. Guppys should be placed with smaller animals like him. Mollies,Platys,other guppys.

Hi sky042
