I think I can make you feel a little better. I had a wild betta pair that cost me $95. They arrived safe and well and the top of their tank was completely glad wrapped so there was no space to jump out of.

24 hours later my male is a crispy on the floor. Have absolutely NO idea how he managed to get through the glad wrap.

Also this pair in the wild is listed on the critically endangered list. Doh!

Jumping always makes me feel like the most terrible murderer in the world but unfortunately with these fish it is a natural behaviour.

I had a similar circumstance, except there was a cover on the tank. Looked everywhere and was freaking out because I couldn't find my first boy. Turns out he was stuck to the filter intake (which was under the filter). My fiance found him and I was horrified, thinking he was dead. He wasn't dead, but his fin was mostly gone. He passed away that night. I was heartbroken, but I did learn a valuable lesson about filter intakes.
I really hope that's not what happened to yours!!

My girl jumped a good 3 inches out of her tank through a half inch hole in the lid and fell a good 4 1/2 feet to the dustiest corner of my entire house. She was out of the water at least a half an hour before I found her. Her tail and fins had begun to dry and she felt dry to the touch, but she wiggled an awful lot when I picked her up. I rinsed her off and put her back in her tank and she sunk, so I plucked her out and rinsed her off some more and put her back in. She sulked in the corner for a few days and was afraid of my hands for several months, but she's fine now.
