    Hard to tell from the pic. However here is some info given to me by someone here. Can't remember who.

    are the ends gray compared to rest of the fin.

    And My best example of different ((I have had both nips and finrot)) Do they look like the spots were cut with scissors or put through a shredder?

    What are your nitrate levels? Just wondering, it's hard to tell from the picture but your gourami looks like it has some nitrate burns

    Many of these diseases can be taken care of with massive water changes and keeping optimal water conditions to prevent it from happening... That is assuming it's fin rot. Could it be another fish nipping at the gourami?

    Ok definitely not what I was thinking judging from your stock I'd say not fin nipping either, that pretty much just leaves fin rot. Frequent water changes will definitely help, there is also medications out there that do a wonderful job for that
