Okay, that's what I am thinking. Thank you.

Oh, I think I'm going to name him Buggle. I don't know why lol. He just has such a big, bobbly head compared to his body.

Ja, definitely give him a chance n.n You'd be surprised. All fish need is a good will to live and they can pull through. My fish was once on the very verge of death, but with verbal encouragement, he managed to pull through when it looked like he was a gonner for sure!

He's blowing bubbles already, and I made a mistake, he's just painfully bony, his spine is sticking out, making the scales along his spine LOOKING LIKE they're sticking out too. He's hopeful. I think he wants to live. It's really just the scales on the top of his spine behind his dorsal fin that are raising, a few before it too. He's gained some color as well.

Gah, I don't know what to do.

Update-
I think his scales have gone down a bit! He's looking much better. Still breathing heavily, but I'm guessing that's because of his deformed gill. He's swimming, working on a (small) bubblenest, and even he's even flared his gills, but not completely open(though not his fins, those are still kept clamped). He's not afraid of me at all.
I'm glad I got him. he's not eating yet, but he's a fighter, and I'm quite sure he'll heal up well.
