Why would it be too late? Add, a bit of Tetra "stress coat" (promotes healing) and isolate him from other fish that may add stress w/ another cycled tank (quarantine) or a divider, I don't know how he is swimming, but he should be alright if he didn't die in the first 48 hours.

Also, bump up the heat to prevent disease, probably 80-82F.

Hopefully we get some more comments...
