I'm thinking if you are observing him, he might be ok for a week.

In my opinion, it should be OK for no more than a week. Long term I foresee issues. Some of My LFS have them in 10ís, but the expectation is they are only there for a few days before being sold. How big is the tank itís going in for long term? They need room.

Petco is running dollar a gallon sale. A 20l would give it a little more space and stability.
