I should have mentioned the sexes. They're both female.

Hmmm, they're both out at the moment, taking in air at the surface. The problem is I haven't seen the bullied one (gold) eating anything for a while.
It's odd for females to do that. Normally trios and sixes seem to be the best way to diffuse aggression with gouramis. It may be advisable at this time to add one more or four more to balance things out. Gouramis in general are social fish and do best with a shoal with only a few exceptions like giant gouramis who are fine on their lonesome. For me, six has always been the magic number keeping most of the more common species, like honeys, pearls and moonlights. The dwarfs are another matter entirely.

Definitely use that ratio, two females to every male keeps things very peaceful.
