I would take him out of the 5 gallon and doa full change on that as well as a good rinse.

For Edward, put him on 1 tsp/gal epsom salt and get him into some clean, conditioned water. There might have been some chemicals in your tank when you bought it or on some of the decorations.

It's always good to rinse anything new for an aquarium in hot water.
