Yeah, they're probably mates. I'm not really sure you should have angels with gourami actually. The area of the tank they live in, and the whole territory issue, doesn't seem like a good match.

As for changing water chemistry, or water flow, i've been doing BOTH and my angelfish pair are still consistently spawning every 1-2 weeks. If they're not bothering the other angels, I'd say you're fine (depending on tank size). But like I said about the gourami, that does not seem like a good match.

eta: yep, double checking the Scalare Angelfish profile, you read this in the "tank mate" section:

"Not suitable with anabantids (gourami, betta)"

I'd pick one type of fish and stick with it :/

I don't think you need to get more for the others to shoal. that might even cause more problems since the original four have already been in there so long.i don't know if increasing proteins or sugars will do anything. might inspire them to spawn more if its in the form of food!

i can't make you remove fish. i wish you luck with the combination and hope no one gets hurt.
