Hopefully he will be fine. Do I need to do anything else to take care of him?
Hi bro, for a start u might wana lower the water level of the tub to faciloitate breathing, secondly I would add abit of API stress coat if I have. And lastly make sure the tub is properly covered so the palmas won't be able to commit suicide for a 2nd time when it regains energy. But make sure it's not air tight.

You're lucky. My endy wasn't so lucky for my case. jumped out during the 3hours I was napping.

Good luck!

I never do anything after I throw my palmas/rope back after they jumped out and almost dried up on different occassions.

Both jumped out at night when everyone was asleep and found lying on the floor early in the morning.

My grandmother asked me "Still alive?". My answer was "They don't die so easily.".

I realize that palmas are very jumpy during the first few days. Add in some black water + having some hiding spots in the tank helps in reducing stress for them and thus making them less jumpy. Deep water may also be better since they don't get jumpy after moving them into my tank which is ~2.5ft high. Before that mine were in a tub of ~1ft high.
