There are two possible individual CA Cichlid candidates for possibly keeping with that group of Pearl Gourami's, and even then I'm not certain of success.
That would be the Yellow Dwarf, Amatitlania nanolutea or the Rainbow Cichlid, Herotilapia multispinosa. At around a max length of 4 inches for the Rainbow Cichlid, (even smaller than that for the Yellow Dwarf), these are small-sized Cichlids. But even then when kept in aquariums, many supposedly 'peaceful' New World Cichlid species can often behave like real goons towards peaceful Gourami species for some reason. Definite exceptions to this are the bigger Blue Gouramis and most definitely, the rather ugly 'Giant Gourami' - - Whew.... that's A MEAN ONE! :eek:

So no, I personally wouldn't stock with ANY CA Cichlid in an aquarium with Pearl Gouramis in it. :(
