If your first one is doing so well then to do the same thing with the second and you should soon have 2 well rounded fish.

I am sorry for your loss
Golden nuggets are notoriously bad to acclimatise to tanks. Once they get a sunken belly most people beleive them to be unsaveable.
I lost one exactly the same way.
With the surving one feed plenty of veg mine loved courgette and pepper.
Once you get them feed they are a fantastic catfish.
