Need your advice

Thanks to this forum I was able to get my clown loaches through ich. They are now spot free and starting to eat good and even play a little.

Now I need some advice. Today at the lfs, I saw a poor little loach that was not doing well. He was in a tank of shovel nose catfish and sort of just laying on his side. Being a sucker for a hard luck case, I of course bought him. I have now identified him as a queen loach.

I now have him in a well seasoned tank and put in a low dose of aquarium salt as a tonic. Is there anything else I can do to get him over the stress and on his way to recovery? Thanks for any advice.
