I recently bought 6 sunset thicklip gouramis and I was watching them a day or so after getting them and noticed two of them swimming pretty much on each other and going in a circle. Any possible explanations would be appreciated...

Maybe they're different genders? Never had gouramis, but maybe it's a breeding behavior?

My 2 female thicklips used to do it all the time. Never hurt each other but it could get pretty intense. They didnt stop until they got moved into my 55 gallon community, about 6 ish months or so after I got them. They started in quarantine and moved from there to a 20 gallon, to a 30, and eventually to where they are now. Not sure if it was a the change of scenery or they finally just figured out their place, but they are always together now and very rarely fight. I can't even tell which one is the more dominate one anymore.
