Maybe you need a better flaked food. Cobalt likely has the best product. My Gourami, just have one in a large community tank. It's a rehomed fish. My tank is his home. Anyway, get some Cobalt and put it into a sandwich bag and crush it. I use an old rolling pin. Drop in the powder just above the fish. Mine doesn't like the bigger pieces, but relishes the real small ones.
