Howdy folks,

Just dose some salt and some stress guard in the tank. Little you can do to try save him. it is all up to luck now. It is unfortunate. At least you managed to spot them sooner and they were not in their crusty state like when I seem to find fish like my coral red pencilfish or rasboras or shrimp

The best thing you can do is hold the fish in front of the water flow to push water across his gills.

It may take 20 mins or so but he will end up swimming again just fine.

If it is laying on the bottom and you leave it there it will most likely die so you need to get the water flow across its gills straight away.
