If you can find him a tubular cave/decoration to call his own you will make him very happy. They like these but will most probably cover the entire tank hahaha.

Provided enough space he will roughly double on that size eventually.

What is the size of the tank if i may ask?

He has a PVC pipe and a huge turtle tunnel that he adores.

A 55gal. I've had him for maybe a month?

Oh, she's amazing! Sparky looks just like that when he goes into feeding mode too. She looks like she's in a 55gal also?

EDIT: I just adore these fish.

If that's the case, I certainly don't feel so bad about keeping Sparky in a 55.
