Thanks, I had been really suspicious of that egg spot. I've read that sometimes young/small males will have a fake one so they don't get picked on by larger males, but this guy/gal lives alone. Knowing that he is most likely actually a she I'm considering asking Sean if he will ask the "owner" if I can have her for my sorority. He is going to try one last time to ask his boss if we can set up a 2.5 gallon tank with heater and filter for the fish. I wish there was more we could do. I really worry that if we just took her home they would get another and I feel conflicted about that.
