Question Betta fish stuck under a rock! Will he be okay?

I happened to look over at the right time to find my betta sqirming around under a rock. I got the net and moved the rock and he swam up to get air. He turned kinda dull. Will he be okay? Should i add Aquarium salt? ;(

I might remove the rock. My female betta got stuck under her egg cave so I moved it and she got air and was fine. I went back in a hour and she got herself stuck agen and died...

Other then that, he is probly scared and could of got hurt. Keep an eye on him.

Could possibly add some stress coat into his tank, and keep the lights dimmed to keep him relaxed. He is probably just stressed. I hope he is ok though, can be scary.. this is something my Xander would do in a heartbeat. Don't know how many times he tries and gets into his substrate.

this happened to my crowntail, i came to look in his tank and his head was stuffed in the small hole of a statue with his body hanging out. thinking he was for sure dead, i removed the statue and he swam up for air, then looked at me like, "UM, EXCUSE ME"
