    Frankly with that tank and stock you can keep a group of any of them you want. Only thing I would recommend is my experience has shown that they should all be the same species and they should all be added at the same time.

    More important is your water, soft and clean are a must or they will die.

    I would be concerned about adding Apistos to a tank with that Gourami in it.
    A. borellii, A. cruzi, A. resticulosa and A. steindachneri will all go ok in harder water.

    A. borellii


    A. cruzi


    A. resticulosa


    A.steindachneri


    I would just be concerned about what kind of mood the Gourami would go into, by adding the Apistos. He might be all nice and friendly with the other fishes you have, but he might not like the idea of the Apistos invading his space. The other thing that could possibly happen, is that the Apistos might turn the Gourami quite shy, and he might hide lots of the time. Not an ideal combination, in my opinion, and they will have to be watched very closely if you were to try it.

    ...Or since your tank is so large, Get kribs. They won't get lost in the tank so easily because they can get 12 cm long for males.
    And they do better in hard water than apistogramma in general.

    +1 to the above

    Kribs are really colourful, I have a breeding pair the now and their colours are second to none
    My therapist says I need a bigger tank . . . . .

    I would suggest getting 2 males and 4 females, allowing a pair to form then rehome the other male and 3 females

    My only problem with that would be I could not rehome them easily
