Pink "Kissing Gouramis" not eating.

Hello All,
I just got 2 pink kissing gouramis 2 days ago. They are in a 55gal with 6 neons, 1 catfishy, and 1 gold algae eater.
They stay new the bottom of the tank moving arond sometimes but do not eat. When I put flake food in there they do not come to the top to get any.
Instead, my neons are eating everything.
What could this be? I have read that they eat alge also, but I dont have any algae (not in significant amounts anyway) in my tank.
What do you suggest?
My water parameters are fine..

Thank you all,
Richie

try frozen foods, I havent seen many fish that could resist that.

Seeing as how you just got your gouramis two days ago, I would think that they are still adjusting to your tank. Moving from the lfs to your tank can be extremely stressful, and I have found that gouramis take an average of one week to adjust.

I agree with endgame, try different foods, but imo, there is nothing to worry about yet.

Well, a lot of fish simply prefer sinking food. The cichlids in the tank I recently started for a professor require sinking pellets, otherwise they won't eat! I'd advise getting some small-medium sinking pellets.
