Bruised weather loach?

One of my wather loaches made a bid for freedom yesterday, jumping out of the tank andplummeting three feet to the ground, then squirming off under the furniture. Caught him after a couple of minutes, washed him off and bunged him back into the tank. He seems ok, except for some redness in his tail and around his mouth - I'm guessing it's bruising from his fall. Anyone else observe this? Should I do anything or just hope he pulls through?

Thanks,

Colman
