    What are the water parameters of the tank? What are the genders of the gouramis? What are the tank mates?

    Dwarf gouramis should not be added together due to their territorial and aggressive nature toward each other. if kept together you should have them in at least a 55 gallon tank and have at least 6 to spread the aggression

    Is the tank what is shown in your profile page? Your tank is lightly planted, thus there is actually no cover for the DGs to hide from each other.

    Yes, there is more in there now and drift wood etc, that was a picture from a while ago all 4 Gourami's all other fish are fine. I took one that was acting a little weird back to the fish store they put him in his own tank to watch him and did not make it there as well
