Poor guy...I would actually QT him and rehab him back. Clean water will promote healthy recovery. If he's moving his fins and seems to be swimming perhaps he's just a little shocked.

Problem is i dont have a QT tank set up yet because im unsure where to put it, should i get a breeding net to atleast keep the others from getting to him? Its seems he is slowly starting to swim a little more but for the most part he just lays on the bottom sometimes falling to his side. He was my favorite

Thats what i had to do, did he act funny afterwards?
No. It was a “light” rock that was stacked up. He dug his way under it and it just kinda settled on him. It was a ropefish too so he’s more snakey then the average fish. I learnt my lesson though.

I would at least try and get him separated either in a net or another tank (I know you don’t have one) and turn the lights off, just to let him relax. I just lost my little corrie today cause I sucked him up the siphon. He was acting off so I didn’t think he was going to survive.
