Maybe. Try feeding a plant-based flake food or some mashed peas, that might help. It could be stress-related, although swim bladder issues caused solely by stress are pretty rare. If it is it may correct in a couple of days. It could also be an infection caused by the stress of moving, which might require meds. This last is what I figure is most likely.

Hard to tell for sure what's going on, especially on such a small fish. I'd try the food for a few days and if it hasn't corrected you'll have to decide if you want to spend the time and resources to try to save it.

And if you want to put the time into saving it, I’d get a cheap 3g plastic tank for it to have to itself so it’s not competing for food. If it grows big enough then put it in you main tank.

I think the box will work, I raised a stray fry I found in one, maybe put a couple floating leaves for cover and keep it off to the side out of direct light
