Gourami with weird holes

Just found some small holes in his fin and he has another small hole in his actual body. He is in a tank with just guppies, shrimp, and snails, so I donít think anything is attacking him. Click image for larger version

I did just lose a couple of guppies out of that tank last week, but I thought it was just stress? They didnít have any holes, just lost a bit of color then went belly up.
All my water testing says Iím within tolerences (0, 0, 5ppm). My ph has gone up (from 7.4 to 8 from the tap) but I have a piece of driftwood in there to help level it out....

Following this to see if anyone has ideas, my dwarf gourami got tiny holes like the ones on your fish's fin a couple of days ago and the next day he was gasping at the surface. Wish I knew what to do.
