betta took a fall!

i was just changing my plakats water and i placed the female in her small holding "jar" like i always do; some how when i was out of the room she jumped out and fell about three feet on to the grown. I was out of the room for a total of five minutes. when i came back in she was on the ground not moving i quickly placed her back in her jar and set up her tank. she had a little carpet and dust on her side and she a little light in color. how serious is this? ive never had this happen before (and ill make sure it doesnt happen again)... any help or tips would be appreciated!

You don't know how many times I've had this happen to me. lol

It must've been a scare! I'm sorry that she pretended to be a bird. :S

Keep her tank dark (cover it with a dark towel or something like that), keep it warm, add a tsp of aquarium salt per gallon, and she should heal up in no time :)

I had one jump to the floor last week and he's fine now...but he was a little sluggish for about 24 hrs.... He wasn't out of the water as long as yours tho... Healing thoughts! <3
