He should be fine. Take him to an lfs you could get some credit. Or leave him in there, he might pair with a goby? Or just live his life. Be Carful, he will snap your hand and it will hurt bad.

Thanks for your knowledge, I googled my worries away too. I've only got two clowns and two cleaners in my nano. The rest is coral.
