I got a ten-gallon tank two weeks ago with a Three-spotted gourami, two feeder fish, a plecostomus, and an angel fish. I had a one-gallon tank with an aggressive female betta (she killed any tank-mates I tried to put in there with her). It's nearing winter time and I only have one heater. I mad sure the new fish were all settled down together and calm before putting in the betta two days ago. Today, I woke up to her flaring at the gourami. I'd be worried, but there's no biting involved, and when the betta chases the groumi, It's not super-fast motion, the betta just swims after it with flared gills (sometimes very slowly)

betta and gourami are related fish that will both want to own a piece of the tank's surface. Watch them as they are capable of killing each other but it also possible they will work out a dividing line. If you see blood or fins losing big chunks, separate them ASAP.

ive heard angels and bettas arent a good mix either, once the angel gets big enough betta looks like lunch.

Angels are usually okay with other fish if they've been raised with them. eamhhair, you're tank is WAY overstocked. Feeder fish grow to 12 inches long and are messy, the common pleco gets very large, three spot gouramis get to 6 inches long, and angels are fine in that tank while they're still young. I would get rid of the feeders and pleco. The gouramis need a larger tank. Try maybe a 50 gallon.
