I think you're a bit overstocked, so it wouldn't suprise me if the aggression is due to this.

That's just a guess, but I reckon it is likely to at least be a contributing factor.

Have you only just recently noticed this behaviour?

Overstocking doesn't always cause water problems, but I'm just thinking that perhaps there is simply not enough territory in the tank for everyone to get along.

Have you tried moving the deco around?

It sounds like aggression over the food in the net to me, I had a neon blue gourami who I had to take back to my LFS because he guarded the fry net to the point where no fish could go near the front of the tank

I don't really know how to help you here, sorry I don't know whether moving the breeder net will work, but it could be worth a shot, even if it's only a temporary fix. Someone else should come by here and be able to help.

I haven't ever heard of older fry guarding newborn fry.... But maybe someone else has.

I used to have this happen to me.
Mine became so bad that she actually ripped half of the others scales off
