I finally gave in and bought another African butterfly fish. This guy was the smallest at the store but he was the only one who had that amazing gold metallic that mine had. For now he's staying in my 10g divided tank with Gabriel until I have him off crickets and eating flakes and freeze dried foods. Plus I still need to make my 48g safe for him.
Right now he's super underweight, he also hasn't eaten yet but hopefully he will soon. Poor guy came from pet club where they tend to starve to death because they aren't fed live foods combined with the stress of living in a rough/strong current caused by the filter.
