Just keep in mind that your taking him out of an aquraium where water conditions are most likely horrible, so just be careful to acclimate him to new home (water). His present home is most likely low pH, and low kH, so shock is a real possibility.

Water should be okay in his tank I did such a large WC yesterday he was on his side in the tank. But I will be slow to acclimate.

Ricky, quick question, just out of curiosity, but why wouldn't he be fine in a 20 gallon permanently? That is the recommended tank size for a single fancy.

Not my recommended tank size

20 gallons for the first fish
10 gallons for each additional fish
4' min tank length

I know people get away with less
And my recommendations are generous
A single fish in a 20 gallon you could get away with for a period of time but



and he is only 2 years old.
I sold a 4 year old this passed fall that was 10 3/4"

I hope my little man gets that big! I'm just getting out of the hospital, trying to convince my friend to take me to change his water or pick him up. I didn't get to yesterday. I'm stressing about him. ):
