Try to keep the parameters of the water the same. Same temp very close in ph if possible. The salinity change is stressful and a temp change on top of that is even more stressful. Watch the fish for breathing trouble or lethargy to keep him out of osmotic shock.

I added buffer and im adding warm water to match the aquariums temp in the plastic box im putting him in. This should work, but hes been breathing fast since i first added him into my tank, im afraid this will shock him more.

Good luck. I have my fingers crossed for you and the little guy. I agree with your LFS though, a hyposalinity dip is the best idea to kill the parasite.

Ph is around 8.3 and temp is around 79-80 so its ready. Before i put him in.. Should i leave him for a full 2 minutes or what should i do... Hes already stressed and breathing fast.

When I got clowns, I thought they had ich, but there was no visible signs, I ended up killing them by following bad advice and kept switching the poor things from quarantine tank (qt) to qt.

If there is no visible sign of a disease he is probably stressed. Keep the lights off and movement around the outside of the tank to a minimum. Try to feed a few times a day to see if it will eat. I had two chromis that died after a week as they just wouldn't eat, were breathing rapid and got skinnier and skinnier.

Unfortunately if it doesn't learn to eat, it will not make it.

I wouldn't dip him longer than 2 minutes... He's already stressed. The FW dip won't cure Brooklynella but it might remove some of the slime and some of the gill
Parasites. A formalin dip (quick cure
Is one brand?) is what the guys on wet web media are suggesting.
