Can a Sailfin Molly and Opaline Gourami be tank mates?

Can these two fish be tank mates? I always thought so and have never read anything saying they can't. I just got a sailfin molly today and my opaline is chasing him all over the tank. I have a 50 gallon. The molly seems OK now but I think that is because he is staying in the bottom corner and not coming out. I also have one angel and 10 tetras.

They can be tank mates however if your gourami is ALOT bigger he could think the molly is food or he could be establishinng his teritory with the molly and just showing the molly that he is in charge.
