I'd imagine, if it wasn't cycled, that could be the problem, and even with a wc, the damage is done? If cycled, than I'm not sure. Do you know what the water parameters are? That would be helpful.

Hope he pulls through.

no it wasn't cycled (I warned her to do so after losing some of my own fish because of an uncycled tank) but hes still alive just on the bottom on his side :(
