probaly do have any aquarium salt?

if so net him and put him a 1 gallon bucket of something with about 1 teaspoon of aquarium salt (not table salt it will kill the fish for sure) do this 2 times a day

or treat it in the 10 with accordign salt (1 teaspoon to a gallon)

Stress coat will not eliminate nitrites or nitrates. However, the chlorine should be bound in seconds.
What is the temperature of the small tank? What was the temperature of the larger tank? Sudden changes in temp will stress a fish.
