Hey so i heard some splashing about just now then noticed i couldn't see one of my fantails! Found him stuck between my two filters....he likes to squeeze himself into gaps for food. He was there about 10 mins til i realized and freed him hes swimming with the other fantail now, ive just added some stress coat will he be okay?! I couldn't see no injuries but will have a better look in the morning! Is he likely to die from the stress? :(

As long as he doesn't have any signs of injury he should be fine... just watch out for signs of ick and try not to do anything out of the ordinary that might stress him out i.e. wc, trimming plants, ect.

If he is acting fine, no sign of injury I would just observe him for a few days. I don't really see why you can't do a water change as usual?
