Facial injury treatment

What's the best treatment for a 1" pearlie occelatus who got into a lock jaw battle and lost half his face?

---> .(

I don't have a second tank so he's currently in the isolation box with a few shells. When I found him I put him in a cup with some tank water and a drop of prime, but I still need to get an air stone and external heater, so I didn't want to leave him in a bucket for long.

I think his lower jaw is still in tact. Not sure about the upper.

Looks like he's been in a Quentin Tarentino movie.

Hard to take pics with all the bubbles stuck to his box. I just did a water change.

Poor guy. He's one of the victims of the not-pearlie from my other post, if you saw it.

He's too big for anyone in my tank to eat. Should I just leave him in his box until he gives up the ghost?
