EDIT: actually, i noticed you only have one cory cat... they're a lot more fun/lively in groups! i'd get at least a couple more of them, maybe instead of a bristlenose. i guess that depends on how much algae you need eaten though (go for the BN if you get a lot of algae).

EDIT EDIT: my bad, didn't see you already were trying to get a bigger home for him. awesome
yeah, i know he will get huge, i really like him though, just have to get him bigger tank. i used to have 5 cory cats, but 4 of them died so i have this lonely cory now, but i'll get him some friends soon.
