Gouramis and territory

I have had one female gourami in a 27 gallon tank for about 3 weeks now. We decided to get some more since this seems to be a pretty easy fish to take care of. We got one male and the rest female. Now I have 5 total in the tank ( dont plan on getting more). My question is. The female we had previously is chasing all of the new fish around like crazy. How long should I allow this to go on? I don't want to stress out the new fish. I know she is probably trying to keep them all away from her "areas" but will she finally stop once they all settle in?

um i had gouramis before and i got them together and they fought sometimes but they had mating behaviors to so so they may fight sometimes when its time to breed.she may fight them at first and then stop but im not sure.

Alrighty! It seems i was incorrect picking them out at the store. I believe I have 2 males in the tank. Oddly enough neither of the males is chasing anyone. Its still the lone female I had before them that is randomly chasing. Its been a few hours since they were introduced into the tank and she seems to have already calmed down quite a bit. Hopefully they weren't too stressed in the process. Here are pictures of each fish. i believe I have 2 Blue gouramis and 3 gold.

lemme know if this link doesnt work for you guys. It should lead you to the album i made on here.

My favorite is my newest Gold Male. He reminds me of a tiger!

Hmm actually I just learned something else. I thought Gouramis were live bearers but they are not! Bubble nests hmm? I guess would a moderator move this thread to the appropriate forum?
