Would a female cobalt blue gourami (6cm) get on with a female honey gourami (6cm) in a 10g tank?

Don't need them to be friends, just not to fight.

Well... you can look at this question several ways.
1. they are both females so possibly won't be as territorial as male gouramies.
2. they are both gouramis and historically it has been noted that anabantids do not like other anabantids, and these two fish aren't the same species...
3. The tank is relatively small, so the small tank may create excessive tension.

If the tank is well planted (eg. a lot of dense planting) this may allow the fish to hide from one another to relieve tension.

Wait for other responses as well... I have had gouramis but of the same species that had animosity to one another, while my brother has two species (flame dwarf and honey) with no aggression displayed.
