Kissing Gourami are very fun but be sure to have a larger tank for them...50 gal should be great to reduce chances of aggression towards other fish.

I have a gold gourami, moonlight gourami and powder blue gourami (a variant of the dwarf neon) in with a ghost knife, fire eel, and needlefish, among a few others. I feed the latter mentioned fish, which are all in their late juvenile stages, feeders and earthworms and the gold gourami is very aggressive at feeding time. He will eat both the feeders and worms, enhaling the worms as soon as they hit the water; this fish is more carnivorous than omnivorous! He is also aggressive towards the powder blue, but no others. He may be the exception, but beware!

I noticed a lot of comments on the male flame gouramis being agressive and I would put my lot there also. However, it has only been against the two goldfish that we have.

My pink giant gourami was only about 4 inches when I first bought it. After about 5 months, it grew to about 12 inches! It eats a lot and grows real fast. When it is hungry, it will keep begging for food whenever I approach it. But after a heavy meal it will become quite nervous and hides whenever I come close to it. Quite an interesting fish. It will swallow whatever that can fit into its mouth. Now that it is big enough, whenever I place my finger onto the tank glass, it will start attacking it by knocking its mouth against the tank glass!

I have a red male betta and he is one of the most beautiful fishes I have ever seen. I used to have a male with a blue body and his fins were different colors in different lights. My red one is very social around strange people, never hides, looks and wacthes things alot, and sleeps alot!

I have 8 pink lady gouramis in a 300 gallon tank, i bought them about 5 months ago when they were about 4 inches long. now they are all about 12 inches. they tend to get along very well. they are very cool looking all together. on the other hand i also have 3 red tails and 2 white gouramis in a 240 gallon tank. they are very aggressive and have to be separated all the time. for some reason the pink ladys seem to be the peaceful and newest of the spieces.

I have two powder blue dwarf gouramis and was keeping both in a planted 25 gallon tank along with 2 otos and 6 panda cories. The larger of the two (both male) became more and more aggressive toward the other (never the other species) until it was necessary for me to move the victim to a different tank. Unfortunate as the two really had some interesting interaction before the aggression. An absolutely lovely fish.

I have had bad luck with fish, but bettas are very hardy. Also they are not messy like goldfish. They have a lot of personality, (for a fish) and mine will even take food from my fingertips. I have had three--two females and a male. Now I am down to one. My male died of old age, and I lost a female in a cat related tragedy. If you look around you can get some very pretty females--mine is brilliant red. She lives in a five-gallon tank with a ghost shrimp. (Which by the way she gets along with fine once the novelty of "something-new-to-follow-around" wore off.) Ivan is quite right, just because they can live in a small container does not mean they should, they should have at least a gallon. In all these are great fish, definitely one of my favorites!
