I’m debating between getting one scarlet badis or a sparkling gourami for the centerpiece fish for my 5 gal heavily planted tank. There are 8 chili rasboras and rcs in there currently. Currently my nitrates never get above 10 ppm and I’m willing to do water changes two or three times a week if need be. As this is my only tank so I am able to and willing to dedicate a lot of time into upkeep. Any thoughts?

Sorry if I repeat someone else.  I have kept and spawned both.  The Badis is not a centerpiece fish.  In my opinion, will hide more than you want in a heavily planted aquarium.  I would go with the gourami.  
Good Luck
