What to do with this Koran angel?

So I got my cousin into reef keeping and he has a 30g long and made the mistake of buying a Koran angel that tipped some of his corals and so he tried to take it back and they wouldn't so he gave him to me beings I have a 40g fowlr that just has a snowflake eel in it. The Koran is about 4" long. He will be ok in the 40g for a year right? When I move I'm going to build a large fowlr tank 240g and he will go in there. But right now he's got no other home. I can't imagin he won't be ok. In the tank for a year as I'm sure they grow slow especially in a smaller tank.

Well of course it's not ideal. I guess I'm just looking for someone to agree that this is really the only thing that can be done. I guess it's redicaulous to think that he will die from being in the smaller tank. It won't be the best I'm sure but I don't know of any other home for him.

Yeah, not ideal, but better than being in a 30g. Korans will get big, so the. 240g will be great. My LFS has a smallish Anularis Angel for sale, but has been in what is probably a 20g tank for the last 3 months or so. I'd grab it in a heartbeat if I had a large enough tank. It looks very healthy, but sure stinks to see it in such a small tank.

Only other option I can think of us listing it on Craigslist for sale . I've seen people do that when breaking down tanks. Only sell to someone with a big tank.
