Talking Sky Diving Bettea Fish!

As a lot of you know I have one of my 7 females MAUI in a hospital tank repairing her fins.

During a daily water change today while i was adding aqua. salt to her tank she took a nice dive from the jar she was in on the counter to the floor!

I was sick to my stomach when i saw her, but lucky it was only a short moment from when she jumped to when I found her.

She is now back in her hospital tank but is spending lot of time on the bottom, wondering if she could be injured?

Is there something I should be adding to the tank (other than the oak leaves and aquarium salt) that could help before anything worse happens?

Thanks, BETTA BOY

the drop was like a meter high. the water line in the jar he was in was low too, so its incredible she made it out. I cant even believe it.

Thanks for the help thought!
