My gouramI at first had trouble with his swim bladder and within a week, he had fixed it himself. IF you look it up, the internet says that about 50% will fix themelves, but the other will not. It's kind of a wait and see situation. As long as you make sure he is eating

That's what it sounds like to me (only because that's what my dwarf gouramI was having trouble with, and it continued for about a week, before he "fixed himself")
I may be wrong, of course, but I would just keep a close eye on him, and monitor his swimming capability every day. I am hopin you will start to see improvement

I don't think the rtbs situation is at all serious. I've noticed a little white spot on mine's fins as well, but he's still at perfect health!
