The other thing you can do to help your fish is to lower the water level for a few days until he has a chance to recoup. The less distance he is from the surface will make sure he is able and strong enough to get to the top to breathe, even if he's not feeling 100% yet. Keep him warm, clean, and well fed, leave his light off for a few days, and he should be back to normal quickly. As was said, they are pretty resillient fish...
BTW, tell hubby that next time give you the tank and supplies as a gift and let you have the fun of setting it all up. If he thinks it would be 2 gifts in one that way, he's more likely to comply. My ex used to do the same things to me quite often, killed a number of my prized fish. If it worked on him it should work with most!
