My dwarf Gourami is not active, staying on the bottom.

Does anyone know why dwarf Gourami gets inactive? I searched online and maybe because it's stressed. But what caused the stress? The recent water test came out all good. It got inactive probably over a week ago and was worse. The body even tilted a little for some times. I feed my fish TetraColor flake everyday. They seem to really like it. My dwarf Gourami eats very slow. I found many times food was all taken by the 3 neon tetras and 1 guppy. So I use a small plastic bowl to block other fish from grabbing the flakes and feed my Gourami first. Would that cause any stress?

I am also not sure if this might be a digestion issue. Today instead of feeding them flakes I fed green peas to my fish which they all love. So my Gourami does come up to the surface in the morning when I feed them but shortly after just find a quiet place to stay. Anybody know why and how could I help my Gourami?
