My Paradise fish jumped out of my tank some time last night. I have a cover but there is opening near filter, that's where he jumped from. I found him in morning, he looked dry. I thought he was dead but when I picked him up he was moving, so I added him to tank. He started moving, first he was in shock but then he got calm. I think being labyrinth fish kept him alive outside of water.

I have ordered Seachem StressGuard, for prevention of diseases and healing, will get delivered tomorrow. I have added API Stress coat for now. I have closed all opening using a paper I had, so he won't jump again.

I got that fish yesterday, I added some prime with him and some salt. He was moving everywhere restlessly or actively yesterday (not sure which one).

I have Methylene blue as well, should I give him bath?
Anything else I should do? Add?

The pic is from today. Seems like some threads from carpet are stuck to him.

Go easy on the meds, stress coat and the guard should be plenty to help him recover. Keep the stress in the tank low or remove him to a hospital tank if anyone is bothering him.
