Please help now!!!!

While doin a pwc in my 75 gallon tank i found one of my platies stuck behind the co2 cartridge barely alive. Ive been looking for him for 2 days!!! I moved him to the quarentine tank amd tried to hand feed him. I think he ate a little but he is on his side at the bottom of the tank :( what else can i do? Can he be saved????

125 - cichlids (severums, bolivian rams, chocolate), rainbows ( turquoise, red), loaches (angelicus, zebra, kuhli and horseface), plecos (BN, RL and clown), denison barbs, tiretrack eel, pearl gouramis, betta

Update: Sheldon is moving on his own a little and no longer is on his side. He is still on the bottom of the tank, but looks like he is gaining some stregnth back. I sure hope he pulls through!
