I think it is very unlikely that the bubbles were caused by a sugar yeast mixture getting into the tank.
Have you thought about the possibility that it's just a bubble nest your beta is making?

I think you were exactly right.. The bubbles weren't popping.. They had been. I took everything off cleaned it and put fresh yeast/sugar in and it's all better.. Moved the diffuser under filter.. Thanks

I never looked at the photos :Banghead: looks like a bubble nest. Is your beta spending lots of time around it. Im not to experienced with co2 systems but I always thought the bubble were a lot smaller then that...but it is in more than one area so maybe co2..

What is this film and bubbles on the surface?

It's cleared up and they seem happier now.. I literally watched the bubbles from the co2 diffuser come to surface and never pop.. It never has done that before, they usually 90 %dissolve by the time they reach the surface... I put in a new mixture and moved diffused by the filter and it's back to normal thanks

Interesting. Maybe that's why I always thought the bubbles were smaller lol

The size of CO2 bubbles will depend on what kind of diffuser you have, how clean it is, and how many bps you have it set at (if using pressurized).

I still think your betta is telling you he needs a woman.
