Yep I would give points to sparkling gouramis, they are really nice little fish.
I'm shocked no one has mentioned the sparkling gourami. It stays relatively small and can develop a nice red and blue hue around the fins. They can also be kept in a little group of say around 4-5, they can spar at time especially before breeding but no harm is caused, at least when I kept them they didn't. If you tank and its environment is quiet you can hear them make clicking sounds.
thanks again Michael, I think that's a good idea. Let the tank run grow plants and breed shrimp till the tank is established. After that give the gourami's/betta a go.
I may just have to restart the thread once the tank is ready then. Thanks everyone for your input!
