You probably shouldn't introduce fish from another person's tank who has been in fish store tank water into your tank of healthy fish. Especially if the fish is visibly sick.

Small snails, brine shrimp... Getting something to put in his tummy might make him feel better. One of my pea puffers wouldn't eat dry food only live...
