Okay, well just for future reference, it is better to allow them to adjust to the temperature and then slowly get them used to the new water as I've found often the pet stores have different water chemistry than I do. If you'd like to know a bit more about acclimating let me know

Can you provide more detailed answers if possible as to the size of the tank and all of his symptoms?

I'm sure that from what you described he might have more than pop eye. A picture would be nice.

While you were at the pet store, did you get bigger tanks for your fish?
Because I know how much you want to help other fish, but you have a lot of fish already at home who need better living situations as well :( Even if this boy gets better, he's not going to have much better of life if you don't get him a nice big home.

You said he was in " a little bowl with dirty water." But now you said he was in a tank and when they removed him, they put him in a 'really big bag'?

I am confused as to what he was in before. A little bowl will likely have high ammonia levels, but a tank and big bag may not (possibly) have as much. It doesn't sound like you acclimated him to the new tank, so depending on his previous water quality, you may have shocked him.

On the plus side, you added a heater, which is good. (But the lack of acclimating may have also caused a temperature shock.....)

What is the name of the "salt stuff" you added? And how much did you use?

Yeah, he might have been shocked, but I'm thinking, from the sounds of it, that the shock would be the least of his problems.

I would just like to make a suggestion as regards this thread. :) Popcorn has a tendency to not always answer the questions or regard the advice when multiple forum members try to help. I think it would be a good idea if just LittleBlue helped Popcorn out here, and just LittleBlue's advice will be easier for Popcorn to follow. :)

Best of luck, Popcorn!
