Just so that you know, your thread title made me giggle like a three year old.

It seems weird to me how quickly SBD can come and go... When I first started out on this forum I thought it was a death sentence for a fish, but apparently it has a tendency to spontaneously resolve. :/

It seems SBD is a bigger deal than I thought?? Lol, I had it once, it just came and go...I've never actually heard of death by SBD. Only death, with SBD as a symptom.

Glad he's better!

Good water changes, aquarium salt if you must, and the fins should be good as new. Don't use meds YET :)

My Merlot had it for 7 months and he's got a touch of it right now. He's got himself wedged by the heater right now.

Dramaqueen, that's really an interesting case. Have you ever actually known what the cause was? I could easily imagine physical damage, or birth defect (or early fry-damage) of some sort.

I have no idea. He was fine for the first 3 months I had him. He was never injured or anything since I've had him. He had it for about 7 months then it disappeared. Then last night he was floating on his side but was able to swim down and wedge himself between the wall and the heater.
