Gourami acting very very strange.

I bought a dwarf gourami yesterday. Once I put him in the tank, he started to act all mellow.Been hiding a lot. I put food in the tank, and only the barb ate it. Later, I caught the gourami near the surface, so I tried to give him some food. I put the food right near his mouth. Let it in the water, he didn't eat. I scooped it out. I then tried again, only this time keeping it in my fingers. I put it right in front of his mouth. Didn't eat. I can literally grab the fish, he doesn't try to swim away at all. The barb I have in there is acting fine, eating and everything. What could be wrong with the gourami?
