I bought a group of them this spring from Corysrus and really like them. I also had some boraras, but I think I like these fish better.

Apparently they are quite easy to breed if you simply put some sort of a grid at that bottom of the tank for the fry to stay under so the parents or other tank mates don't eat them before they're old enough to fend for themselves.

Here's a pic of one of mine when it was still a juvie, but it was already showing decent color. I should take a few updated pics now that they're older.....

The shrimp should be fine if they have plenty of cover, but the Gourami's might make a quick meal out of them since they're so tiny. Many recommend these fish go in their own tank since they are so small.
Mine have their own tank (20L), except I have one sparkling gourami in there, who isn't much bigger than them.
