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.
