I'd lose the betta male. He'd be aggressive with the other anabantoids (paradise and gourami). Unfortunately, the betta wouldn't stand a chance. Let him go solo in his own tank. The gourami would likely be next on the PF hitlist as they are very similar and could lead to aggressiveness. Dwarf gourami tend to be less aggressive than their full-sized brethren, and the stress alone may kill him.

I know several people who've tried to keep dwarf gourami, but none have lived more than 7 mos. Mass production breeding, I guess.

Good luck with the community.
