Blue Gourami

I just got a male Blue gourami big enough for my biggest female blue gourami. The male blue gourami sometime bites at the 2 females. The bigger of the 2 female gourami sometimes bites at the male one. The other female doesn't. Is for the gouramis biting at each other normal? If they breed is there a mating dance or watever

I don't think this is actually "biting" or fin-nipping. The dominant male Gouramis have a tendency to chase other Gouramis for no apparent reason. For as good a community fish they are, they are very individualistic. This is no reason for concern.
