gold gourami problem
i have a pretty big tank 360 litres or 95 gallons ive had 7 gold fish roughly 8-10cm and 3 small algie eaters roughly 4-5cm two days ago i bought 2 gold gourami's both are a little bigger than the gold fish the first day i put them into the tank they were fine getting along well with the gold fish swimming all around the tank now they are just sitting in one corner not moving much hiding behind a plant 24 hours a day and not eating much should i let them settle in longer or remove them from the tank and buy different fish?
My guess, since you didn't elaborate on how the gouramis wera acting toward each other, is that the gourami that is hiding is not the alpha. The dominant fish may be exiling the less dominant to hide behind the plants. Have you notice any unusual behavior such as lack of eating, or aggressive behavior between the two gouramis? Are the any signs of disease or marks of aggression on the fish in hiding?
both are eating very little if any.. one gourami was abit territorial towards the other and both of the gouramis are showing signs of being aggressive towards the gold fish and alot of touching with there wisker thingos and there are no marks they look good also when feeding they try to bolt off smashing into the glass

Whisker thingies=ventral fins
Sent from my desktop or phone or whatever else I am holding on to
I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.
there has been improvement in the tank i have 1 male 1 female gourami the female is getting along with the gold fish pretty well she comes out to play only when the gold fish are near by and once she sees someone walking or moving in the room she bolts back behind the plants the male just stays behind the plant 99% of the time but he is slowly doing circles around the front of the plant every now and again i will be buying more fish soon what would go well with what i have i can pick from the folowing
