My dwarf doesn't really "hunt" when I put the flakes in, he just eats whatever blows past his face. Mine really likes TetraVeggie "extreme" algae wafers, maybe you could try those. Or blanched zucchini.

Sounds like your fish might not feel comfortable in the tank. Gouramies really benefit from floating plants and other cover that reaches up toward the surface of the water. Gouramies typically spend most of their time hanging out near the surface so if your fish is hanging out in a cave or something lower in the tank, I'd say something is definitely off.
