Clarkii clown emergency.......

I have bought 2 Clarkii Clown fish (about 1").One is fine, swimming,eating,chasing the other etc.But the other has a problem. It is not coming out of its shelter which it has made behind a coral.Its two eyes have bulged outwards.Moreover its not eating. Its just one day since I have bought them. There is only 2 of them in the tank. I have given the fish a freash water bath.But it did not help.Moreover the fish is becoming overly stressed.I have movedit to a Qt.What treatment shall I do?????????

You will find it very important to post your water parameters when asking for help.:) Also, what size is your tank?

Sent from my desktop or phone or whatever else I am holding on to  2
I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.
