Unhappy Spaz then jumped out!!

Aghhhh Basch!!! ;__;

I came home today and Basch was asleep. I turned the light on and he woke up but was unusually sluggish. A bit later, he did this HORRIFYING nose dive into the marbles and had a spaz for like 15-20 seconds where he ground his nose hard and quickly into the ground ;__; He then stopped and was perfectly still, I thought he was dead.

I got my net to put him in his bag, and it fell over and he fell (not far) to the desk, then (pretty far) to the carpet. I was so scared ;___; I quickly got him up and put him into about an inch of tank water (warm). I let him rest for a few minutes (in which time he layed still and was panting), then put him into a few more inches (like 2.5-3) in my small critter keeper with his favorite anubias to rest on and hide in.

Hes not panting as much and isnt as pale- sorta active but is resting a lot...

Anything more I can do for him?

-lower water level
-warm tank water
-a tiny bit of salt
-on an oat bag (microwaved and keeping the tank at 80-78)
-completley in the dark til iI check on him

Once I go to bed, I have to put him in his bag over night...

Is this ok?

Alle is fine btw. Normal as ever, so is the tank. Idk what was wrong..

What else can I do for baschy? (WC out of the question- its 12:30am right now)

He's okay now, just fine. I did what I listed and he bounced back within a few hours.
