Like Sena said, lower the water level so he can reach the surface easier. Don't let the water temp get over 80 F. And add 3 tsp of epsom salt per gallon.

He is swimming upright again, I still can't tell if he'll pull through, and I don't know if it was dropsy because I noticed something, the filter had what looked like little pieces of red in it so I turned it off and am in the process of fixing it, I hope Fhil pulls through, please give him a prayer!

Ok, now I do think it might be dropsy cause it looks like there are more pieces of his fins missing:(

Dropsy wouldn't cause his fins to drop off. Most likely it's fin rot or fin biting from stress. Keep an eye on his fins, make sure there aren't any big pieces of black on them.
