Petsmart Rescue

So on the 18th, I went to Petsmart for plants and I saw this guy, a sad little crowntail with what I thought were serious SBD issues. I really wanted to rescue him but I'm seriously running out of room. But later that night my mom asked if I wanted to save him and of course I did so here he is and I'll just make room for him. It turns out the poor guy was starving to death because he couldn't or wouldn't eat at Petsmart. He's perking up but still can't swim yet. He sits up and bounces on his tail when I feed him.

Here he is the first night:

Thanks DQ. I was really afraid he wasn't going to last the first night.

I plan on it. I'm so nervous. Tracking shows he's "out for delivery" so I know he's on a truck rignt now.

Today's the big day! You probably know to open him up in a dark room so he's not shocked by the light.

Yep. His tank is in a dark area and the room is pretty dark too. My other fish have light but I've shielded his tank from light. He'll be comfy.
Question: I'm working today as well and may have to sneak off and go get him once I see he's been delivered (to my apartment complex office). Do you think it would be ok to have him in his bag, sitting in his tank (with the bag slightly open of course) until i can come back and acclimate him?

sorry for suddenly hijacking your Petsmart rescue thread :(
