A gouramis 'feelers' are very often a tasty snack for other fish to nip. What tankmates does your gourami have?My therapist says I need a bigger tank . . . . .

+1 to that.
I'm fairly certain they need those feelers.
that'd be like taking whiskers off a cat.

A gourami's "feelers" are actually just modified pelvic fins. They can survive without them but they do serve a purpose.

That's my favv part about my gourami. Anytime something new is added to the tank, esp fish, he follows it around and sticks out his feeler. I find it quite comical. I hear him in my head saying, "Muuust tooouuch". Lol. Yes, I have the voices. :)130g: 4 Angelfish, 2 Roseline Sharks, 12 Conga Tetras, 5 Kuhli Loaches, 1 Otocinslus, 1 Corydora
