well heres what happened.... DISMAL FAILURE! :(
first I completely rearranged the decor and acclimated him to my 110g, over a couple hours and plopped him in. he did great! I sat there for over an hour, he even interacted with the other fish in the tank little bits here and there, but for the most part they didnt even acknowledge him much.
sooo I played on my computer for an hour. went back to check on him, and again he was mostly hiding behind some driftwood, but no problems.
I laid down, and about 30 mins later I looked over and he was missing! I found him under some fake plants laying on his side. I quickly scooped him up and put him back in his 29g. He had damage to his nose around his mouth, his right (i think its his) pectoral fin, tail fin, most of his right side, and his one remaining good eye :(
fortunately hes eating again and his eye has returned to its normal red color, and the damage to his body is starting to fade. actually for all tense and purposes hes perfectly fine, but man what a bummer. I thought he was going to lose his eye if not die, but neither has happened.
NOW i need to decide if im going to try again when hes bigger or say screw it and get a 55g :\
