    I've currently got a single female opaline gourami and I'd like to get another but only one so a male would not be suitable due to aggression but could I get another female?

    Gouramis normally chase each other regardless of gender. Just choose something that is the exact size as she is

    Depends on the size of your tank. 30g might not be enough space. 4ft+ would be good.

    Tank is 2 and a half foot and approx 23 gal capacity including filters. It would be hard finding one the same size as she's fully grown and the ones in shops are not even half the size so I think I might give it a miss. At the moment she chases the cory cats now and again but that's normally during feeding time

    In a 23 gal, aggressive encounters are unavoidable
