just changed water! emergency!

I just finished aclimating him to the water after I did a 50% water change, all of a sudden he started going biserk and the back half of his body keeps trying to flip over (that and from above he looks like an "S" shape) I put in the normal amount of StressCoat that I always use to declorinate the water. and he's currently cupped in some old tank water, I'm really worried.

Double check the water temp and do another 50% water change double dosing the dechlorinator.....keep him in the small container-don;t remove him for the water change...be careful dump half the water out and have the replacement water premixed and like temp and slowly add to the Qt you have him in...
