We’ll warn you folks, this video is not for the squeamish, especially if you don’t like needles. However, the video demonstrates how relatively simple it is to ‘treat’ a fish with a noticeable gas bubble behind or around the eye. The fish is a bluestripe clownfish, Amphiprion chrysopterus, and it was swimming around calmly and eating just minutes after the procedure was completed. Full how-to write up will be forthcoming.
