New addition clamped on one side.

I've just gotten home with a little HM boy who seems to be in shock. He's clamping his right pectoral to one side and listing to the bottom of his temporary container. I've put a lot of BWE in his water, and I'm hoping that it's just stress from the bumpy bus ride home ... there's a big turd on the bottom so he's pooped and is eating as far as I can see, but remember I've JUST gotten him so I can't really tell if he's acting normally or not .... :/

Any suggestions for helping the little guy? He's quite pretty ... a blue marble butterfly. Hopefully he'll be okay! *crosses fingers*

EDIT: I've added a bit of Epsom salt and he seems to be doing a little better for now. I'm still worried about his pectoral fin though, it doesn't seem to be working that well.

Aww maybe he is a Nemo =) He sounds adorable. Hehe.. the ride home literally scared the poop out of him =P (yuk yuk yuk)
Just keep him warm, stress coat, dim for a bit and see if he perks up enough to place him in his home. Unsure if the Epsom works for stress.

I think he'll be okay! He just flared at Kryptonite and he's using his fin now. Whew!
