I'm not sure where you purchased your fish but if it was at a chain store (PetSmart, Petco, Walmart, etc.) most likely the person selling you the fish wasn't fully up to speed on the requirements needed to take care of the fish they sold you. They usually are more concerned with making the sale than educating you on your particular purchase.
You can rest assured that the advice that's been given to you here in this forum in regards to your particular fish is positively correct. You're going to have to decide what to do because as your tank stands now it's simply not going to work out in the long term. I know it's not what you want to hear but you need to do what's in the best interest of your fish.
I know how you feel as I've made my fair share of mistakes stocking a tank and while it's never easy giving up something I know I did the right thing in doing so.
