2 male dwarf grouamis
I have been searching the threads here and elsewhere and cannot find if it is OK to stock 2 male dwarf gouramis, no females. Not interested in breeding until I have a few years of experience. What say you?"The manner with which we walk through life is each man's most important responsibility, and we should remember this with every new sunrise."

I say no, they are far too territorial and will eventually fight so much one will die. Only way this sorta thing works is if its a large tank 70G+ heavilly planted with lots of sight barriers and you have an odd number 3-5 so to make a pecking order.My therapist says I need a bigger tank . . . . .

Likewise. With this and most of the "common" gourami, one male with 2-3 females of the species is best, if tank space is sufficient. Two males requires space. They are very similar to cichlids in this respect.
