    ok, thankyou all so much for the response given here, i will def use this forum again. i dont think my problem is filtration, but i am still clueless as to what could be wrong with my gourami. my thought is to isolate him and try to see if he will eat something as at least he wont have to contest for the food then. is this a feasable idea?

    I really don't think that would be an issue unless he is trying to eat and the others are beating him to the food.

    Keep a close eye on the water params for the next week or two. Ammonia and Nitrites should be 0. Nitrates can be present as long as they aren't high (i think 20ppm is about where they usually are)

    not sure about that filter you have, the interpet 2...Googled around to try to find out what size tank it is rated for, but all I found was that they tend to break easily...generally you will want a filter that can handle twice the capacity of your tank size, so if your tank is 16 gallon, you would want a filter that can handle 32 gallons...I'd personally try to get a 40 gallon filter for that tank if I could

    One thing that hasn't been brought up is that you have two bettas in the tank. Female or not in my experience, bettas and gourami do not get along. If the females were established and you introduced the gourami they could be picking on him.

    i've actually had the gourami longer than the bettas although i did not know the females could be an issue. unfortunately i had to dispose of my poor gourami last night. thanks again to everyone who responded, i have been given some very helpful advice here.
