    Welcome to the forum

    It sounds like they are starting to settle in. There are 4 other gouramis in the tank? That would also be a source of stress and aggression.

    A pair is two I believe.....:;id Try adding some additional hiding spots so the fish being bullied has a safe place to retreat to.:;hf

    This seems to be typical gourami behavior.

    The OP's aquarium info indicates there are 6 gouramis in this tank.

    I agree with jaysee...6 gouramis in a 50g (190l) tank is going to be havoc now that everyone's settling in

    It's in the aquarium information.

    6 Gouramis are definitely going to cause stress. There might be territory issues, or some gouramis may be more aggressive
