Wow...did I read it right? You have a 400 liter tank? No wonder your hubby bans you from having more fish lol I am a diver, so I enjoy seeing fishes in the "aquarium" nature has to offer and I can't imagine taking care of a 100 gal tank!

OFL, our super moderator here is also a natural aquarist. I like reading her advice and suggestions and also learn something new from the members here everyday I don't think you need the water bubble, it's nice to have but not necessary. I know, these little guys are so resilient with interesting personalities and all gorgeous! If I could have my ways, I would have a houseful of them, but my hubby said enough is enough (Not sure why he is giving his opinion, since I am the one who takes care of them all lol)

Cheers!

I have posted a picture of sushi somewhere on the site!!! today, he is so much better, there is also a pic of my 399liter tank here too , would adding ES on a regular basis help to stop it reoccuring?

Once he has been through the 10-14 days treatment for the SB/buoyancy issue and has recovered from the problem, I would not keep him in on a regular basis even though ES can be used long term and I know some do. From my personal experience, if the betta is prone to have SB issues, ideally it should be in a shallower and wider container.

Good luck to you and Sushi

Cheers!
