Ah cool =) Gotta love those last tries for summer heat.. shouldn't be back up that high anymore. I hope anyways. So definitely at least get a thermometer to keep an eye on his water temp. They only run about $2 and worth it.

He's got some torn fins there. Do a 100% water change now and add dechlorinator (which you should be adding every time you do a water change) and do 100% water changes every other day from now on. :) He should heal on his own with clean water. ^^

how should i go about the water change? i feel like despite the water being clean, the rocks have debris in them that dirties it up right away, how do i also clean the rocks?
do i need to mix the dechlorinate in the water or do i just let it go and it does the job. should i just fill 2.5 ml and put in there and put him in or is there a waiting period?

Just keep swishing water in the container and rinsing until there is no more debris coming out from the gravel. fill the tank and add the dechlor- there should be instructions on the back of how much to add. Wait 10-15 min, then slowly accumulate him to the new water.
