Every fish ages differently, just like humans. I had a betta that was a little freaky spaz-butt up untill about two weeks before he died. Then he went down hill fast. I've also had fish that just up and die. Quite strange.

Gouramis can live several years, over 5 years is a good age for yours. My opaline gourami is around 5. I've noticed mine acting a little sluggish lately too, tending to just hang out quietly and barely moving.
