I wouldn't add this unless you are doing a water change. See my new article on Total Solids for the reasons.
I never fuss if fish jump out like this, I just put them back. If they are otherwise healthy, they will be fine.
Most water conditioners contain some form of "slime coat protection" as they call it. Some are supposedly natural, some are more likely chemical substances or aloe vera or something similar. Not everyone here thinks these "slime restorers" are good for fish--my concern is more with the TDS from them.
