Might I offer a suggestion since you're still his primary care taker. He needs at least a 55 gallon tank. He's also got a pretty bad case of HITH (hole in the head) which can be cured but will take a lot of work on your part. Being in a 30g tank right now, he's in need of daily 50% water changes.

To fix that HITH he needs pristine water conditions. If I was in the San Diego area I'd help you out, but unfortunately I'm on the other side of the rocky mountains. Do right by this guy and try to help him recover before sending him to another home.

I was contemplating it, but

1. wifey won't allow another tank in the house, and it would have to stay in the garage, where it gets real cold nowadays. (A 200w heater in a 20g was always on last month ).

2. I was getting tired of doing everyday 50% water changes for the last 8 months on the festae growout tank. I don't know if I'm up for even more rigous water changes again.

Yeah, I could check, but I still have the problem of a 30g tank after the guy heals up.
