Ok! Well, keep a close eye on him for now and let us know if anything unusual happens (bubbles appear again, he stops eating, starts acting strange or swimming funny....).

Well sometimes he stays at the back in one spot but when I go near the tank he starts swimming normally again.

How large is the tank? Is there surface agitation (from the filter or air stone)?

Is he by himself? I did want to check on something else-he looks ok today? Are there any sores/ulcers/redspots where the 'bubbles' were yesterday?

No he looks perfectally fine. Except he spends most of his time at the back by himself.

Maybe he needs a friend? 33g is enough for 2 fancy goldfish (but no more!). You could also try rearranging his home a bit or adding some easy-care plants to make more interesting.
