Gouramis tend to do this if they don’t have enough room or if their environment is “boring” or not complex enough. Gouramis are active fish and they should be spending most of their time patrolling their area of the tank, weaving in and out of plants or decorations, or examining their reflection in the tank glass. Unless your tank is 20+ gallons and is well planted, you will probably need to separate the two Gouramis eventually. As they mature, they will both look to expand their territory, and in a small tank, that just leads to fighting… Email me if you have any questions.
