Female gold gourami agression

Hey-ya, i have a 10 ga tank with 1 male and 1 female gold gourami and everything started out fine until about 2 months later the female started harassing the male to the point of him being malnurished and shrinking. Anyway, to resolve the problem i added a male dalmation molly and 2 female creamsicle mollies, i know bioload, blah blah, i have it well filtered and have a great upkeep system going on. And now the only difference is that she has more fish to bully, ive quarantined her for a day, changed to scenary and kept the light off, and nothing is helping, any ideas????

My Dad's advice to me on this problem, no lie, was to whack my "bad" fish with a yard stick when it attacked the others. HA! He swears it used to work like a charm for him but I think he's crazy! I ended up taking my aggressive fish back to the store, I couldn't figure it out either.
