Exclamation HUGE scare this morning, is she OK?

Hey guys, this morning I woke up to see Peach chasing around another brownish fish in his side of the tank. I was confused, as I had just woken up and was quite groggy. A closer look revealed that the other fish was Pi! She had somehow jumped out of her cup into Peach's side, and was being chased around the tank by him! I quickly netted her back into her cup and took it out of his tank, then floated the cup in her own tank, which was finally heated to the correct temp. I believe Peach has taken off a tiny piece out of her caudal, but other than that she seems fine. What surprised me the most, though, is that she didn't have a single stress stripe while being chased by Peach, but got them right away after I put her in her cup. Pi is kind of a hyperactive fish, and is the only Betta I have that gets stress stripes at a mere water change of the exact same-temp water..

Here are pictures of her after the incident:



I think that Peach took a little piece off of her caudal:

I removed the other fish that were floating in that tank and floated them in their own tanks as well, as I didn't want this to happen again.

Anything else I should do for little Pi?

Make sure you keep your temp stable and at around 78-80 and your water should be nice and clean. Other than that keep an eye on it and make sure that there's no black or red on the edges. It's not too bad so clean, warm water alone should be enough for now.

Okay. The temp is currently 78*F. She already was nearly recovered from some *very* minor fin rot. I think I'll prevent anything further bad happening as long as I keep her water nice and clean.
