Hi, welcome to Reef2Reef!

There really isn't much you can do other than supportive care; dim the lights and ensure there is good aeration. Some people would suggest adding one of the artificial slime coat products, but that is just going to clog the gills, so avoid adding anything like that.

If the fish survives the initial trauma, you may need treat it for secondary bacterial infection.

How long was it out of the water for?
