I don't know if this is the case for Gouramis but lots of schooling fish establish a pecking order, with the dominant one in the group keeping everyone else in line. With a large school, the abuse is dolled out to multiple fish, so they don't really get stressed out much. If you only have a couple fish, that weaker fish is the target of all the dominant fish's abuse, and could stress the poor little guy out. Whether Gouramis have a similar behavior or not, if neither fish has torn fins or missing scales you'll probably be OK.
