Espei Rasboras and 3 spot Gourami

What do you guys think about mixing these 2 fish?Some say the Gourami is too aggressive, some say if the Rasboras are in a large school they should be okay. My tank is 72 gallons, currently have 20 Espeiís and 10 dwarf neon Rainbows. Looking to add (3) three spot Gouramis. Tank is heavily planted.

Why not go with a trio of pearl gouramis instead? I've kept them with much smaller tank mates without any problems.



Where the hell was Biggles when you needed him last Saturday?

Does it make a difference if i only keep females? Are they less aggressive, still show good colors?
