Exclamation Down the Drain!

So my friend was cleaning out her betta tank and the fish jumped from the container into the sink. She got it out before it was to late and she said it was only in there for about 1 minuted not even. She wants to know if he will be okay. The fish is currently in his tank and alive, but are their any side effects?

Just keep the temp about 76 to 78 degrees and he'll be fine. Maybe he was just in mild shock.

Keep the betta closely monitored to see if anything happens.

Lesson:

Always have a betta in the container with a lid.

Put the paper on the top of the cup while you clean the tank.

Thanks! My friend says that he is swimming fine and is breathing okay and his tank is currently warming up. Apparently he jumped when he was being transferred to a different tank. I don't really know how it happened because I wasn’t there but she feels terrible. Thanks again!
