I have always found dwarf gouramis drop dead at the slightest thing, be it slightly off water conditions or stress from faster moving tank mates!

Thanks, made me feel better reading this, I think red phantom tetrae would have been a better option than sepia, all except dwarf gourami wilfy, i believe
