Bump: Sohank Apistogramma looks awesome. Would they be too aggressive to keep with Gourami? Strange enough I'm also in Naperville -- Mind me asking where you pick up your fish? :P

Apistogramma a fairly peaceful, dwarf cichlids tend to be aggressive to one another, until territories are establised. I used to shop at Aquarium Adventure, but got tired of the stupidly overpriced fish and awful quality. 10 buck for flippin Praecox rainbows, and I got them, and 5 out of 8 died. I took a trip to Fish Planet in Deerfield, they were $4 and bigger, and better quality, none died.
I go to Tropi-Quatics, they have a great selection, and filter each tank independently, so diseased tanks are marked, and fish aren't allowed to be sold from those tanks. The prices at tropi-quatics are fair, and the fish are good quality, and for the most part they are selling adult specimens, which is awesome for things like Diamond tetras that look awful when young.
Naperville, IL? I shop at aquatic adventures often.
Try Tropi-Quatics, much better prices and fish are healthier and bigger.
