 1.  Lose  the  green  gravel.
 
 2.  Drop  the  temperature  to  about  74F  Or  turn  off  the  heater.  Where  in  India  are  you?
 
 3.  Wait.  
 
 4  your  old  giant  gouramis  may  not  yet  be  sexually  mature.  A  4x2x2  tank  is  also  rather  small  for  fully  grown  fish.  What  makes  you  think  you  have  a  pair?

 The  reason  I  said  your  fish  may  not  be  mature  is  because  although  they  are  capable  of  spawning  at  2  years  old,  aquaculture  projects  recommend  fish  in  the  4-8  year  range  for  maximum  success.
 
 Another  thing  you  could  try  is  simulating  a  dry-wet  cycle...  leave  the  temp  at  80,  reduce  feeding  to  once  every  3  days,  do  no  water  changes/top  offs  for  3-4  weeks,  then  do  several  large  water  changes  over  the  course  of  a  week,  drop  the  temperature  and  feed  lots  of  live  foods.  This  trick  works  with  a  lot  of  hard  to  spawn  fish.
