my betta i bought today is in a tank without any kind of oxygenation (well, except for HEAPS of plants) and she is hardly gulping air at all, just occasionally coming up to the surface for a quick breath.
Have you tested the water from the Gourami tank? She shouldn't have to come up that often (generally about the same as betta).
