Aagh! My Betta is suicidal...

I came home today and Veles had lodged himself in the space between the heater and the tank wall that was out of the water.
He looked all dried out. I panicked and went to get a q-tip to push him out. I did so gently, and he floated for a few minutes and then he started moving. That was scary. Has anyone else experienced this??

Edit- Okay now he did it again!! What is happening? Does he think he's a land animal or somthing??

I'd change his water. Sounds like he's trying to get out of it for some reason?

Eek! Tell Veles that the grass is NOT greener on the other side, and to stay in the water, LOL. No advice, but I admit, very weird!

What's the temp of the water??

Unless your tank is cycled, do a full water change. If it is, do a 50%, and keep your tank covered!!!!!
