That's great news! I still recommend the melafex though to help heal his fins.

Do you have a Petco or Petsmart?
They should probably have it, I go to Petsmart and they normally keep it by the water conditioners.

API™ MelaFixģ Antibacterial Fish Remedy - General Medications - Medications - PetSmart

So... about $7.
It's also anti-bacterial so that should help reduce the risk of infection while his fins are healing!
Keep us updated!

I'm glad he is looking better. If that happens again, bring him to the surface so he can get some air. Gouramis are labyrinth fish, meaning they can breathe air. They need to surface and get a gulp of air every once in a while.

I would maybe shoot dkpate a private message and see what she did with her DG. It got stuck between a rock and the side of the tank and got scratched pretty bad. She treated him with something and he recovered nicely.
