Ok. As Sakura said, it looks like ammonia poisoning. If the second picture on your first post is anything to go by, then it is quite severe.

Kudos to you for wanting to help this little guy, and I hope he will pull through for you and can do the wiggle dance for your effort one day.

Sakura is an expert when it comes to emergencies, so you are in good hand :)

Daww, thanks Earthworm.

If you can get Stress Coat, that will help him a lot. It's a water conditioner but you can use it just on its own to help them heal faster. See if you can get him to eat. He's going to need his strength. Is he still breathing hard?

Uhm . . . yeah, I guess I would say Stress Coat costs a little. Like $12. It's not necessary. Mostly what will help is clean water. Keep his tank dim and the water around 80 degrees and hopefully he will calm down while you are asleep. I can't make any promises about his survival 'cause he does look pretty bad but I can say you're doing a great job taking care of him. Keep it up!

Nope, you're doing everything you can. The rest is up to the little guy. I'll keep my fingers and toes crossed for him. But whatever happens, you did the right thing. Even if he *gulp* doesn't make it, at least you're giving him nice clean water to pass in and not an icky dirty cup. And the little guy now knows someone out there cares about him so that's good.

Okay, if he's not hungry that's fine. I'm not too surprised. He may just need to settle in a bit before he gets an appetite.
