The only way it would have eaten on it is if it was dead. Plus there would still be the hard unedible parts of it left. What type of gourami do you have?

They can't fit in there mouth. Highly unlikely.. Did you look under your filter, the little lip that hangs into the water. Mine was hiding there a few times as I was freakin out lol. I have quite a few Gouramis and they really aren't aggressive..

I had about 8 gouramis in a community tank when I wasnt knowledgeable on aquaria, and it killed lots of my platies...but I also had a few otos in there and they were always hiding. Dont freak out they just pop out of nowhere and go back to hiding

No way they would have eaten them, the gouramis can sometimes be a little nippy but never predatory. They are hiding somewhere or got eaten by the filter

I agree with you.....I have three, opaline, gold, and three spotted, in the same tank as my eight tiger barbs andthey just are not aggressive...they play then go to their claimed corners of the tank.......
