I'd say your tank is fully stocked and there's no need to add more fish. If you ever have another stocking question, you can visit www.aqadvisor.com fill in your information and it will tell you how stocked your tank is, the fish's ideal temperatures and growth rate as well as some other helpful hints.

Do not add any more fish, you are already crowded with the gouramis. Each needs 30g, they are similar to bettas in that they are not too tolerant of their own kind but unlike bettas, if the have enough space they can be kept in multiples. Also, the gourami and betta should not be in the same tank. They are both labrynth breathers and occupy the same space so you may have fighting between them

Thanks, ill watch them. They are all really happy and sonetimes i think the betta thinks he is a gorami! He schools with them and is treated like one. Also ladt night my gorami had ick on its fins and i was about to treat and he only has 1 dot now?

Are they gouramis or dwarf gouramis? That makes a big difference. You are still waaaay over-crowded, and I am pretty sure you are going to have problems with those gouramis getting territorial as they get older, but...to answer your question, I wouldn't add any more fish!

Instead, save your money and try to get a bigger tank!

Best of luck!
