Default Stocking

Hi I was wondering if I could add a female betta to my 10 Gallon that houses 2 female dwarf gouramis. My betta is overall pretty docile so I don't think I'd have to worry about her attacking. However, I'm unsure of the gourami's. I've read that they're a community fish and I've never had a problem with them fighting each other. Though, I'd just like some Fish Forums input. Thanks!

From reading only I can advise that they are closely related in species, I would not home males together as they may fight but as you have stated it is a female. I dont think that you will have a problem. Have you kept the water condition the same for both tank as far as the transfer that is probably the most difficult part. You might want to condition her to the new home.

I would also watch them closely for a bit and at the first sign of a problem rehome the betta or place a divider in if you have no other place to put her.

Okay, I'll see how it goes. If it doesn't work out I can just put her back in her own tank. Thank you!
