Hi,i had 2 female dwarf gouramis,and 1 male ,but alas one of my female dwarfs has become ill and is staying at the bottom of the tank,occassionally rising to surface only to sink again and go on side,she`s been like this for over a day,but whilst this is happening the male has started to chase the other female and bump her ,does anyone know whats` going on? All water tests are fine.

Sounds like it could be a swim bladder problem? Try upping the temperature a bit, the swimmung up is probably to breath, as anabantoids breath air from the surface. Google swim bladder problems in dwarf gouramis
