Tank partner for a dwarf gourami #1
I’ve just lost one of my female dwarf gourami and feel this species does not tend to last - she appeared to have the iridovirus and I’m now left with the Male but don’t want to get any more gourami fish as they do tend to get sick easily.

Can anyone recommend an ideal tank partner for him (Male dwarf)? The tank is 60 litres (small) so it can only be one or two other fish at the most.

You can't really get him a companion as such - he won't relate to another species as a companion. But you can have other fish than him in the tank depending on water hardness and pH and what else is already in there.
