Gold female Gourami's
 
I have two gold females (70% sure they are both female) and one seems to chase the other one around. Had them for a while now and they seem to be healthy so perhaps it's not big deal. Just wondering if this is normal between two females.

What would help?

most importantly, is it chasing, or is damage being done? do they subside ever? Its important to make sure that one isnt getting bullied to the point where they wont eat. Ive had lots of gouramis over the years, and they can be completely unpredictable. I have had gentle kittens, and ive had dwarfs that would kill fish 4x their size. Sometimes chasing is just chasing, its important that noone is getting over stressed, and that no damage is being done. If that happens, one or both need to be rehomed.

what size tank is this in?
