Hello Jim, welcome to TFK forum.

Chocolate Gourami are lovely; I had a group of both species, the more common Sphaerichthys osphromenoides and the near-identical Sphaerichthys selatanensis and the first spawned often over several months and some fry survived among the floating plants. I had several generations until quite suddenly something wiped them out. As I'm sure you know, they are very sensitive fish and prone to skin issues.

Which species have you?

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

I have the Sphaerichthys Osphromenoides. It took me a long time to get the tank right so they would stay a live. I have had the ones I got now for all most a year. They are a lot of work. 10% water change every day. Have 2 Males and 8 Female.
