This is gonna sound wacky but I have on 3 seperate occassions with 3 diff fish saved them from bloat. I spent several hours and held the fish upright, to allow it to rest a bit, slowly moving the fish forward and back to keep water moving thru the gills. sometimes they freak out and take off and this action causes them to pass out some of their "troubles" lol. Then I hold them again for another rest.
Hey it's worth a try and you can say you've tried everything. Penning them into a small tank does not allow them to keep swimming and they usually flip over or eventually die. Good luck.
How many Gourami's do you have together?
