Gouramis?

So i have 3, 2 gold and 1 blue, my blue is full grown, but my golds are only 3 inches tops


the 2 golds were swimming in tight circles like my danios do when the spawn


Are they spawnning? Are they even old enough?

Agree. That could be a male/female pair, or it might be two males challenging. Close observation of how they interact would tell you which it is.

I know 1 is for sure a female, the other one is slightly larger than her, and i could be wron but his dorsal fin doesn't look as rounded, my big blue one got jelous of the 2 "spawning" (thats what it looked like, it was the same as when my danios spawn) so she decided to take charge and keep the 2 young ones seperated by keeping them on different ends of the tank, so i move the 2 lovers tomy new 20 gallon with my skirts
