    Hi everyone, I have a densely planted 10l tank with lots of cover and I'm wondering whether I can keep one male sparkling gourami alone in there?

    Should not be an issue. Do you think the lone gourami would be happier if there’s company?

    I'm not too sure as I don't really know whether they need the company or whether it might be detrimental if I end up getting 2 and 1 of them gets bullied. Do you think it might be a good idea to take a risk and see if 2 will work well together? If I get 2 males are they likely to fight? Or will the hideouts (I have 2 in there) + plants allow them to have their own territories without trouble?

    One male and at least one female would work better. 2 male gourami tends to fight

    My pair of sparkling gourami seem to enjoy each other's company
