In such circumstances anyone could just say what they would do; tilt it up towards the top of the water so it agitates the surface and increases oxygen. The addition of this p/h has obviously stressed the poor little dude out! I hope he comes through it!

Yeah I actually think you may have done the right thing. Lights off is a gd idea and allowing things to return to how they were will help calm him down.
