Yes, they can although they may rival other male anabantids and harass smaller tankmates.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!

How large are your gouramis? Blue and Gold gouramis are more of an aggressive fish. Pearls would be more suited for community tanks, but they tend to get large enough to be a threat for the glowlights.

my gouramis? oooh id say 2- 2 1/2 inches or so. they hang out at the top of the tank or hide, most of the time they hang out by the filter inlet tube at the top of the tank.

the only time they are ever in the same place at the same time is in transit to their hiding place behind my little wall or during feeding time, and have not even given the tetras a second glance.
