I think he might respond well to a less wide open tank. A quick easy fix for that is buying some anubias and just letting that float in the tank, it's a hardy little plant, and he'll nuzzle up in the leaves. I would also see if you can get him a little cave. Coffee mugs and terra cotta pots make great quick solutions.
Ideally, if you have enough plants, it will help consume the Nitrate in a tank, and will reduce water changes... But unless you want to delve into a NPT, I would just do changes as you already do.
You can either anchor them to driftwood, plant the roots, or let them float - if you do plant them, make sure the little knobbly thing isn't planted, just the roots. It will die otherwise.
I'm trying to remember "I don't speak Spanish" in spanish, and all I can remember is 'Me llamo'... so lo siento?
I have them in 3 MUCH smaller tanks and they do fine... They're like hand sized, there may be bigger variations?
