I'm sorry for your loss.
I'm glad the others are well. Check into if green peas (you do take the shell off) would help with bloat, just for future info. I do remember mine would eat them and they are good for them. Help with constipation. If you can understand what causes bloat, you can prevent it hopefully.
As far as the GSP, he's doing very well. Do your research though. I can see why they aren't for everyone. You are so limited on what you can put with them (basically nothing) :) I just bought a used tank yesterday (68 gallons) to upgrade him too. Sadly, it has a great hood for a reef tank, and my husband dropped it, carrying it in, and all but one of the expensive bulbs broke.
GSP's need space to prevent stunting, and many people put them in full marine, as doing a fish with live rock only is cheaper (salt wise) than just brackish. With marine there is some equipment too, like a skimmer, which I still don't have. I'm still not sure I'm going full marine, but time will tell. They are very cute, and "friendly". I buy him a variety of frozen foods, like clams, prawns, squid and they need snails for their teeth. I love my FW planted tank, but I think I really do enjoy this little guy most.
