Hi people,
Right I've got a 20g long planted tank with the following in:
4 Danios
6 Red Phantom Tetras
3 Bronze Corries

Would any other fish be able to live comftably in the tank with the fish I have now?
or is it fully stocked?

Three dwarf gouramis would make that a nice setup, get a male and two females.

Was looking at dwarf gouramis in the shop today is there any way of telling males and females apart?

gouramis usually go , the males are very colorful and the females are not.

Male dorsal and anal fins normally more pointed as well, females have more rounded fins.

males have pretty vertical orange stripes. Females are grey. Stores usually carry more males because of the color. Females might be a little harder to find. Or at least they are around here.
