No don't take him back, he'll just die without care. I'd keep doing what your doing and raise the temp. of his tank by a few degrees slowly and go 25% -50% water changes a day.

Yes, please keep your fishy. It might die if you keep it...but it will die if you return it.

Please don't take this the wrong why Zanzibar but you seem to be only giving negative info such as 'same thing happened to my fish and it died' and 'bring it back and get another'. Maybe you could try and be a bit more positive.

Using an aquarium heater of the appropriate size.
