I'd definitely agree with that conclusion, Mike. A friend bought a pair of these several years ago after LFS staff told her they were great community fish that stayed small. Her community tank was...

You can't help but wonder sometimes, watching them, if these guys really are just playing. You know? I mean, when they don't hurt each other, or truly seem to WANT to catch the other and just play...

I keep seeing references in various places to dwarf gouramis being aggressive, but that definitely was not my experience in the years I owned them. I don't know if it's relevant to my experience or...

I agree about drilling out any part of the driftwood. Just let the java moss cover it. :) I hope you'll post pictures once you get the other plants in. I'd love to see the "updated" version of...
