Fish was stuck under filter: HELP!

My zebra danio glofish got stuck under my small filter and I shut it off but now he's floating around breathing heavily. He won't move any of his fins. Is there anything I can do? He won't eat either! Do u move him to a different tank or wait it out and see if he starts to get better because moving him may harm him more? His tail fin is starting to twitch, but if he doesn't eat it won't be good.

I think he got injured by my recently rehomed fish that bullied him. That's why he got stuck in the first place. Click image for larger version

If you have any prime or anything like that, I would dose it from the instructions for stressed out fish, it should be like double the dosage or something like that. It depends on the kind of de-chlorination you bought

Turn the lights off and give him some secure places to hide. Probably just in shock and a little stressed.
