I've got a royal gramma with what appears to be fin ray disease, just looking for some confirmation/ways to alleviate the issue.

There are no white spots on the body of the Royal Gramma. Incase anyone wondered.

Fin ray is a condition and not disease and with good water and diet can often be alleviated.

In the video, I see multiple small white spots. I cannot rule those out as being ich. You’ll need to watch them - if the spots come and go over a few day’s time, then it is probably ich.
