what did you do with him? I remember people keeping them in small tanks before and that they make great little pets!

People look for those if you still have him and he is alive sell him and use the money for corals or trade him for corals ....Just make sure that who ever you sell/ trade him to is over 18 as they can inflict painful injuries
