    - khulis low bioload, should be fine and they’re great
    - ottos: do 3 rather than 1 as they are social creatures
    - pearl gourami is a favourite of mine but a) they get large b) would actually do better with 1 male to 2-3 females so here you might run into trouble especially as your 10 guppies might soon be 100 :lol: the pearl gouramis would also appreciate a densely planted tank with cover from above eg floating plants, and a hood as they are labarynth fish who don’t do well gulping cold and dry air

    I already have 8 guppy fry that I need to try catch and transfer to my 3ft tank .

    I do have a piece of plexi glass that i still need to cut to size .

    I always thought you could only keep 2 gouramis per 100l ?

    @eco - tech I wouldnt bother with the fry I found in my own personal experience everytime i moved them I lost some or all eventually. If you lots of place for them to hide like guppy grass and java moss then just leave them.

    Yes I don’t think you have the space for pearl gourami on top of the other livestock. There are other smaller gouramis eg honey or dwarf that might work better?

    My lfs here on the south coast have minimal fish stock.
    So for now I bought the kuhlis.

    They never heard of ottos before
