I ended up having to go with a 10 gallon, something bigger turned out not to be in the current budget for me with factoring in plants and stands and such. It seems to me that everything but guppies will be too big unless they're the only fish in there? Or am I just paranoid of overstocking? I love the dwarf gourami...they are super cute. Perhaps one of those and my few guppies? I wish I could have gone bigger...too bad.
Thanks for the suggestions, I'll research them!
