Pink Kissing Gourami Not Eating

My two fight like mad and one of them is constantly getting picked on by the larger one. She also hides away and doesn't come out for feeding time - I just have to put some flakes over where she's hiding while all the others are in a feeding frenzy to make sure she gets fed. I'm hoping to move her out into a seperate tank soon.
I'm afraid that's my only idea - in the meantime, make sure she's getting a bit of food every feed and watch to see if it's that she doesn't want the food or that she won't come out to get it!?
It might be that she's eating left over food flakes from the bottom rather than algae.
And also - kissers like vegetabley food I've heard so try putting some lettuce or cucumber out and see if she shows an interest in that!
oh - and is there any sign of her being unwell at all? Does she swim properly/look healthy!? And is her stomach looking concave (right word??) - you need to look to see if she's starving or just finding her food supply elsewhere!

Also try feeding some live foods. They should be unable to resist brine shrimp or blood worms and this'll at least let you know whether you're dealing with an aggression issue or if it's down to a lack of appetite brought on by disease.
Oh and, BTW, the kisser won't actually starve if it's eating algae. It'll be getting lots of other leftovers etc as well.
