Question Female with with swimbladder problems

Ok one of my females has developed jumper syndrome, she kept staying in the corner, trying to keep her mouth by the surface of the water, struggling.
I put her in the little bowl that she was in when I bought her, but floated it in the ten gallon tank.
I change the water in there everyday after I feed her so that she does not get rotten food poisoning (I just let the current of the filter gently rise out all uneaten food and old water).
She still sees her buddies and seems a lot better and happier now.
Do you think this is a good situation for her? I've read that if an adult shows an abnormal swimbladder symptoms, you should destroy the fish!

I'm no expect by far but I have a male with SB and he has a nice happy life IMO. He blows nests, flares, swims. His only issue is that he sinks when not actively swimming. Other than that he eats fine and seems like a normal fish.

When not swimming he looks like this

He loves to sit in floating plants and he makes his way around just fine considering

I don't know if this helps at all but I would give her a good workable environment before just destroying her JMO

My rescue betta has swimbladder issues resulting from being dropped (happened before I got him) and he is doing fine. He doesn't show symptoms all the time, I think just when he's stressed.
