I see, yes dropsy is easy to spot when you've experienced before, this I can relate to. Hmm....well reading around a little more I'm also leaning towards some type of bacterial infection....I hear lots treating with Aquari-sol or Maracyn-2....try one of those? Not so experienced in the medical area, had very few sick fish.
I wouldn't say 50% is extensive at all, especially when removing medicine. Whats important is the way you go about it. Using a gravel vac(even without vacing the gravel)is less stressful on the fish and far easer then just scooping water out IME&O. It wouldn't be that big of a shift for the fish.
Its possible the Gourami contracted whatever disease you have and not been able to fight it due to the stress of the new environment.......its difficult to tell, but I think thats the most likely scenario. Anyway, get some pics of your Angel when you can and keep us posed
