I may be able to eventually get Slate to a 4 gallon since i've been able to work him from a 2.5 to the 3 gallon he's in now.. Slow slow steps.. lol
I had this same issue with two of my males...one is back in his 1g until I buy another 2.5, Bali is in the 2.5 now and loves it..he hated the 5.5. He just never calmed down in it. I just want them happy...Bali loves that his new tank is next to my mirror, so a couple times a day I can remove the background and he can intimidate the "other fish" lol!
