Our Betta got stuck in Fluval filter system. help !!

Hi all. We have a 25L Fluval Chi.
Last night, our beloved Betta got stuck in the filter attachment (the bit where the filter system slides onto tank)e
He could only of been there for around half an hour. When we realised, we carefully removed the filter and he flew out. He seemed pretty pissed off and sat at the bottom of his tank. This was around midnidnight. I added 5ml of stress coat and left him to adjust. this morning, he his swimming around like normal. HOWEVER... there seems to be a light patch on his head. there is a definate sign of discolouration...
Please can someone advise...

Keep his water super clean and warm, and the stress coat will help. If you have any ial or oak leaves he will probably benefit from some of the antibacterial properties of the tannins. Definitely keep the water clean, to help avoid infection and he will heal.

You should get some sponge and fill in the gaps so he can't get back there again!
