I called the aquarium store today and the owner said she would take him in. I told her how old he was and that he was about 8 inches long. I also asked if he would go into a tank at least 25 gallons. Her reply was that he would go into her 50 gallon tank, WHEW!
So I'm going to take him up myself to the store just to make sure he's going into a larger home. Kinda sad to him go but at least he'll be able to get bigger in a larger tank.
Other than the Pleco, all my other fur kids are staying put.
