In have 3 dwarf Gouramis in a 50 gallon long tank with 2 standard 1990s florescent tube lights and a fair amount of sunlight from a huge (and I mean huge like 4 times the size of a regular window) with the shades drawn most of the day. Any suggestions?

My gouramis love my Amazon frogbit. They're always nibbling on the roots.

They're pretty undemanding with the only thing being that they don't like a ton of surface agitation.

Ok cool ill just put em on the site opposite the filter. Ill probably have to lower the water level a bit too. It's right up to the hood at the moment.

I've also used Water Sprite, Water Lettuce, and Water Hyacinth's in their tanks as well. Water Sprite and Water Lettuce both do well under lower lights with ambient room light.
