Angel Head

My baby hit his headů hard.
So I was going to check in him before I went into a different room for the night. I turned on the light and bumped the tank while he was at the top. He torpedoed down to the bottom hitting is head. He layed at the bottom, and cause I was scared he had died, I took a net and moved it around him. After a few seconds he moved, and he looks dizzy. I am SO scared he won't make it through the night. I really don't want to loose my Angel.

I am hoping he didn't get a concusion, as vets probably can't do anything about this.

It might take him a little while to get over it, if he hit it very hard, and you might see some scale damage, but he will probably be ok. My fish fell at least 3 feet to the hard floor when she jumped out of her tank, and she's ok.

He should be fine, just make sure his water is warm and if you have some add stresscoat.

Not all Bettas flare.
Just try to keep the tank pretty shallow and add IAL or washed dried oak leaves. As others have said, try to keep him comfortable and add stress coat.
