Good job on returning him
You should be proud of yourself for caring about fish lives. Maybe your friend will follow your example. Other than that, tell your friend it's live putting a human in a jail cell for life. Sure they'll live, but it's not going to be a very pleasant life. And the tang did nothing to deserve it.
Also, the hippo tang would grow larger than the size if a 5gal, not that it would live that long.
