if they are right you need to either get him to a qt tank or a established tank i am assuming you dont have either so do you know a freind who has one either that or rush him to a petstore and beg the store to let you revive it in thier tanks

What's the point? The qt wouldn't be cycled either. IMO the best course is to leave him on the main where the water volume (and pollution dilution) is greater. Many water changes, testing and sadly continuing with the 'with fish' cycle. Unless you can rehome him/them.

You CC is probably a disaster waiting to happen too.

Of course all predicated on the tank not being cycled assumption.

QT is always an option. You can do PWCs to keep the parameters in check.

At least the water if done correctly would be better in QT tank than what is in the tank. If you read the post I said to get him to an established tank instead of letting the poor guy suffer like that after the QT.
