Here's my 2c based on my limited experience.

I have kissing gourami with a munted mouth, I bought a dwarf gourami who tried to beat on the kissing gourami, the kissing gourami took it for 5 mins then beat on the dwarf for the next 20 mins.

After that day they have'nt fought at all - I have put more plants in though.

I would purchase a dwarf gourami or something with similar temprement as they seem to be quite docile.

Try and buy female gouramis or have small male to female ratio. Buy gouramis at the same time with them the roughly same size so there are no terrotorial differences. Do not buy large gouramis and dwarf gouramis together because they fight. Do not try and buy kissing gouramis or giant gourami species as they become too aggressive or too large for your tank. What choice of gourami is up to your personal taste. If you follow my advice this will save gourami heartache.

today I went to my LFS and saw some pearls, they were realy gracefull... any way, I'll probably get them and a couple of corys, I'll probably get 6 of either pandas or the albinos...not decided yet. Very Happy [I saw some pandas aswell, they were only 2cm big!]
Is there any schooling/loner fish that is slow moving?[tank mates]

Right, final stocking. The following fish are going to be in a 110L tank;

2 Pearl Gouramis
6 Panda Corydoras
2 Otos
sound O.K?
What plant would be good for this setup?
Would subdued lighting work best with the colours of the fish?
What is better, an undergravel filter or a "hang on the wall" internal filter?
Is 25C a good temp for these fish?

thanks Very Happy
