Jumper Clown- Help

I was checking out my 125g and making sure all was well with the new tomini in there when I just happened to look to the right on the floor. There behind my tv a bit ws my large osceallris clown. I scooped him back up best i could with a net and put him back in. He was on the sandbed for maybe 20 seconds then went back to her mate and looking ok. BUT he is covered is dirt and dust from behind my tv.

What do I do? Should i just not worry since she seems ok? Or should I do something about the dust on her body? QT her in the 55g? I don't knwo what to do...

help.....please....

I have no idea how long she was out, I run an open top so she musta just flipped over the rim. She was flapping on the floor when I saw her, it was total luck I happened to look down when I did. My heart just sunk when I saw her. :-(

she seems to be swimming normally and other than thedust that is still hanging on her she looks ok. I put a cookie sheet over the section of the tank where the clowns hang out so maybe she won't end up on the floor is she jumps again.

Anyone ever scoop a fish off the floor and have a good result?

As long as they are wet they are ok. It is bad if they dry out quickly. At least that is how it was for my FB Toads :/ I'm sorry to hear about your clown. Hope she is ok!

I am also sorry about your clown. It is a good thing you found her though! What I have on one of my tanks in some parts is a clear fabric thing with little holes in it.

Thing is this is my first jumping experience and the last ones I expected to pergo surf was a clown. I;m sure it has to do with the tomini tang Ijust put in but now I have two fish to worry about. **sigh** I hope the clown is ok if she's fine by morning I think I'll worry alot less.

This reminded me of a time when I had a crayfish and he escaped. The aquarium was on my desk (my 20 gallon FW) and apparently the crayfish had gotten out where you hang the filter, and fell off of my desk. He walked down the hallway too, and I found him in the morning. He was put back in the tank and was fine.

LOL. That's funny. back when I first started keeping fw fish in the 80's I kept eels. Never could figure out where they went though. I didn't always find them. Kinda creepy who knows where and how far they got?

Hmmm, secretive eels...... Your story about the eels made me think of yet another story . I don't remember who it was, but I remember someone telling me that one day their iguana escaped and they couldn't find it. Guess what they found about a year later??? The Iguana. Apparently it had been living off bugs he found in the basement. No lie, I found this story hard to believe when I heard it, but it is true.......I have too many stories LOL.
