He's beautiful! How big is he now? How long does it take them to grow that big? You could always take him and grow into a 300 gallon (would kill for a 300 gallon tank!! LOL!)

He's about 1.5 - 2 inch. I'm not sure about taking on a fish that eventually I'll need to rehome. I only have a 4X2X2 tank

Skip this fish. They should not be kept in captivity by hobbyists IMO.
