Jack Dempsey

I just went to my friends house and noticed her tank that used to be her brother but recently moved out and is a complete wreck, i'm surprised that the fish is still alive since the filter hardly works and no water changes. I said i would take it but im pretty sure that its a jack dempsey and i dont think a jack dempsey in a 20 gallon tank is a good idea, or is it fine. Its six inches right now so should i get it out ASAP?

A 55 gallons is the minimum recommended for one. 20g is not really going to accommodate a single one.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.
