Unhappy My Poor Little Guy D;

O.K my latest rescue...Looks sick. He always had a pale whit color to him but he seems to not move his pale color turned kinda orange and he only stays in one position. He lost his appetite and really only floats at the top of his tank. I moved him in the QT tank and put some epsom salt in there. I first thought it was stress i put moss balls in there didn't work. I don't know where stress coat is and i don't really think its stress. Any suggestions cures?

It does sound kind of like stress... I would say make sure he gets something to eat... you might have to try a couple different foods. I've heard soaking food in garlic will help when they kind of lost their appetite (it could also help if he has an internal parasite or something)
and maybe increase the temperature on the tank if you can. Around 80F would be good.
The epsom salt should help some, I would keep that up for about a week then do a large water change without replacing the salt (Salt doesn't evaporate or get sucked up by the filter. the only way to remove it is through water changes.)
And finally, just do plenty of water changes while disrupting him as little as possible.
