You may want to also look into adding live plants, depending on the lighting of your tank. But that's a whole different conversation.

How big is your tank?

Consider the needs of your fish before acting on your desires.

Prime detoxifies ammonia for 48 hours, so adding it after a daily water change will be an immense help. After your tank has cycled you will want to be doing weekly water changes of at least 30%

He is actually moving now, so I am assuming it was just the stress of the move(trying to catch him with the net and all the moving out of the water)

He probably had a rough day. Stressed out. Turning off the lights will help him calm down. I don't think he's in any immediate danger.

Does he look like he is breathing heavily? How long has he been like that?
