Ok for starters do you know about the nitrogen cycle? This is very important. Also your tank is overstocked- a pearl gouramI should not be in any tank other than 20 or bigger preferrably bigger (30+). I don't know how big gold gouramis get but I assume they are in the same boat. The only gouramI I would keep in a 10 gallon is a sparkling gouramI or a honey gouramI and I would keep them alone. They may not have enough spots to hide which is why they are always hiding. Gouramis are very reclusive fish and need to feel secure. Without lots of hiding spots they will not come out much. Also the fish being in too small a tank could add to that reclusiveness as well. I would consider upgrading your tank or rehoming your fish for something like small tetras or guppies or shrimp for the 10 gallon.
