the algae eater.....do you know what type he is,if he is a catfish
then you could always leave him some cucumber weighed down with
a plant weight,of a cucumber screw.and when the lights are out
catfish pellets,he will be sure to find them.
the gourami are very shy by nature,you could try and plant the tank more
a backing on the tank,feed when the lights are out.
live food can sometimes entise a fish out into open water.
how long have you had the gourami ?

hmm well i would say that it's still new so give it time,
it's getting used to it's new home,they can take a while
to settle in.
try some water daphina.
