Water change mishap

The tank was starting to look a little grungy, so I decided to do a big water change tonight and general cleaning. Vacuum under the bigger decorations I don't usually move, scrub off some of the black algae I've been battling.
I didn't notice when I accidentally siphoned up my favorite ADF (never sucked anyone up before), so she sat in the bucket of nasty blackwater as I scrubbed everything down. Then got dumped into the shower, almost down the drain. I was able to quickly grab her, and as I was rushing her back to the tank, inches away, she jumps out of my hands, ...and lands directly in a cup of hydrogen peroxide.
She was only there for a second, but that couldn't have been good. She's hiding, so I haven't seen her since. Poor thing, hope she'll be ok...

Got to ask why was there a cup of hydrogen peroxide there? Hope she is doing okay!

Edit: Totally forgot this was a frog.
It might survive if lucky, but it might also be intoxicated. Watch it's attitude very closely. Not sure though, sorry!

The peroxide was there to spot treat the algae. I don't typically keep cups of it laying around when I'm not actually using it...

It's an African dwarf frog.

Phew! What a crazy succession of events! I just love how she she could have landed ANYWHERE but she just had to pick the peroxide! Lol. Is she blonde now?
