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.

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, 5 Kuhli Loaches, 1 Otocinslus, 1 Corydora

To the OP its normal like ScottishFish said for other fish to nip at the gourami feelers, but it doesnt seem to affect the gourami itself. Mine fight back, so my fish learned to leave them alone. And they grow back fast too. I got Makani with only one feeler, and now hers are huge.
