One inch per gallon is not a good rule. By those standards a 5 in gold fish could be kept in a 10 gallon tank easily. A lot more goes into stocking besides that.

Aw, he only has one eye? Was it an injury or a genetic thing, do you know?

The tank does look nice. And that's a cute name for a one-eyed fish. ;)

There's not really a hole where it should be, so I think he was just born without it. He's really not aggressive at all so I don't think he lost it fighting or anything. And thanks!

Miss him all of the time! I love your tank, I think it looks good. If your proccess works for you and your fish are thriving and acting nice and healthy, I don't see a major problem! Of course bigger is better, but I understand that sometimes you just can't go bigger.
You werent slammed, they just suggested (kindly) what to do that was best for the cory. He needed more space on the bottom and needed a friend, which that tank was too small for.

If you cant go bigger, then dont buy the animal in question, imo.

That's so cute. I have a huge weakness for gimpy animals. If I saw a one-eyed betta I'd be forced to buy it even if I'd be in the doghouse for weeks. ;u;
