If your hand was dry, you inadvertently could have damaged his natural slime coat. If you have Stress Coat on hand, it wouldn't hurt to add the appropriate amount to the tank.
Other than that, he could just be shocky. Make sure your water parameters are and stay perfect (pH, temp, hardness, Ammonia, Nitrite, and Nitrate). I would turn off the aquarium light to help ease his stress. I would avoid messing with the tank as much as you can to avoid stressing him. Are there other fish in the tank besides the other Danio? If so, we may need to brainstorm a way to keep them from bothering him.
Poor guy. I'm pulling for him!
my hand was a little wet. and i have giant danio 2 cory catfish 1 white skirt tetra and one black skirt tetra. the fish dont bother him at all. i was thinking of adding more stress coat. he trys to swim around but then ends up on the bottom again
