Emergency!!!

Hey guys,

i just walked into my office and saw my Yellow long nosed butterfly on the bottom of the tank barely breathing. I took him out and placed him into a small container with aquarium water. I can see his gills flapping and his mouth moving but he is on the bottom of the container sideways, but he is still breathing. Is there any hope? What should I do? Please hurry!

BTW: Neither that trigger or butterfly belong in a tank that small IMO. The 6" trigger is probably already unable to stretch out. This may be the beginning of your issues. Consider upgrading or trading out specimens soon.
