Oh no! Sick babies?

I have 2 six week old honey gourami fry left. Last week there were 4, but two have disappeared. One is swimming nose down, tail up and sort of spinning. Then it comes right and swims normally for a bit, but when it stops moving, it's tail seems to tip up again...
Tank parameters are great, temp 81 degrees.
It's going to die isn't it? :-(

If it's a swim bladder problem, feed them veggies such as peas, cucumber, romaine.

These are labyrinth breathers too, they could be struggling with regulating the amount of air inside them. I know juvies seem to gasp at the surface sometimes learning to use these organs.
