The Gourami type of fish itself comes in different colors, blue which you often in pet stores, gold and opal and some other varieties of rear glass. These fish can be very large and are best suited for large aquariums.

The Blue Gourami is easy enough exist for fine fish floating flake food, you will probably spend the majority of other fish in the tank and keep the diet.

Gouramis are not schooling fish,

So I doubt it is stress-related. Is he lethargic at all? Behaving normally? Eating?
You won't know anything until you get your water tested to see if there are any issues with it. But the fact that your other gourami "suddenly died" and that you are keeping goldfish in with tropical fish might have something to do with it, regardless of how long you've been keeping them together "without issues." Any aquarium enthusiast will tell you the same. I'm fairly certain that you can keep a gerbil and a hamster in with each other for a period of time, but eventually it's not going to work out the way you want it to, because some species just don't mix.
