Yes, they can survive if they are found in time and put back in their water.

Mine is a girl and she blows bubbles. I don't know if males blow bubbles.

Yes, males blow bubbles. Some females do, too. Mine will scatter some here and there.

well, i finally saw my betta make bubbles :) so i tried feeding my betta brine shrimp but for some reason i thought the texture would be different, it seems to disolve so easily when i try to feed it to him and it just spreads all over the water, he only ate the "bigger' pieces he was able to get, are all brine shrimp the same?

Yeah, what you were seeing is a result of the packaging process. Not all the brine shrimp survive packaging intact. What you were seeing was all the brine shrimp bits floating away. The big pieces were whole or nearly whole brine shrimp. Unless you raise your own pretty much all brine shrimp will be like that.

Hey everyone...today I made a rookie owner mistake. Left the fish in a bowl and while cleaning his tank. When I found him he was out of his bowl. I have no idea how long he was out. I got him right back in the water, he swam around. I got him back in his normal tank. He does not look very good but is still alive. His is tummy seems puffed up but it looks like his color is returning. Is he going to die? What can I do to help him? I feel AWFUL! Any tips or things to look for are appreciated. He is just chilling, not a lot of fin movement, at the top of the tank.

Help.

Try using one of those pipettes that come with your test kits, They works great delivering just the right amount of the frozen brine shrimp without a lot of waste... if not a pipettes a syringe works pretty good too... or something small in the line of a turkey baster.

That was stressful on him,,, just letting him rest will probably be all he needs..

Puffed up tummy sounds like another problem, maybe bloat? to much wrong foods

Thanks, Chicklet. The bloat is new, after the dive out of the bowl. He's still just hanging out, not moving much. I hope he makes a comeback! I appreciate your help.
