At first glance I would say the opaline is a female while the other is a male. Look for the ovipositor (white dot under the fish's belly). Females have one while males do not.

I agree with simpte.
Are you still having problems with gourami aggression or are they OK now?

Gouramis are like bettas. While some strains are generally more docile than others, keeping more than 1 male in a tank can lead to problems. Same with females.

Which gourami did you keep, the aggressor or the victim?

Has anything changed in the tank?
I.E. new tank mates, different feeding routine, different water parameters.

:D Iv'e found your problem! Because the female got chased around all the time, she didn't have a chance to hide because as soon as she rested she would get chased again, the reason why she has changed colour is because she used to be stressed alot but now she has retained her natural colour.
Hope this helps.
