Betta fish briefly out of water


When I was moving my fish to a travel tank today I accidentally misjudged where the tank was and poured the cup she was into not into it, but onto the table. 😬 Within a few seconds she was back in water and seems to be fine, although I did have to give her a few nudges so she could slide in. She appears to be fine right now but is there anything I should be looking out for? Is there a certain time frame for when something bad could happen, even though sheís currently acting normal (she is now back in her original tank)?
