Made a mistake! Please check?

Just did a wc, my over inquisitive Odessa barb got too close to the hose and boom in the bucket, she looks pretty beat up, big cut on her face, what should I do? I added stress coat, she's just hovering in place, here's a pic, notice above her mouth, I feel aweful

Fish are very good healers. Clean water. Don't go adding meds and salt and stuff. Just clean water. Do a couple extra water changes this week. It will heal in no time if there is no internal injuries.

Give here a few days and she should be ok. Just watch your levels really close and keep your tank as clean as you can so she doesn't pick up any infections while she heals.
