Don't worry about others, just do what you gotta do for your fish. I know there are people who have kept them in nano's no need to prove your point.
People are just worried is all. This fish is like the unobtainable goal so many salties have in their hearts, myself included.
If you are dead set against bringing him back and trying we all will try to be as supportive as we can. Just remember alot of people on here have also tried and failed so we're not just trying to rain on your parade.
I really hope your guy does well, really. I'd like to know updates as you go along. I intend on adding one to my 55g at the end of the year so anything I can see here will help.
