Thank you, everyone, for your help. Since it looks like a band-aid is not going to fix things for this little guy, I'm going to look into some local clubs and societies. I'll make a few phone calls and see if anyone has a goldfish pond with room for one more. If anyone knows of someone with a setup like this in the Massachusetts area, let me know :). On the plus side, this whole situation has made me realize I definitely want a second fish tank eventually. :) I imagine it won't have goldfish, but I'll just have to decide what else could go in it, and isn't that a fun game?
