Poor lace catfish..

At a local LFS seeing if my 4 zebra "babies" have been sold yet, I noticed the tank that housed some juvenile sharks and dwarf cichlids had a new cat in it! It was about 3-4 inches, and was scavenging. I never saw this type before (my mom said "it was creepy"), so I asked the owner. He said it was a lace cat, and it was blind in one eye. I could see this, since one eye was cloudy and didn't move, and he didn't respond to things with that eye.

Since I feel sorry for any animal with a handicap, I felt sorry for the little guy. I'm thinking of buying it, but I don't know if it's going to cause a conflict with my plans of getting 2 more 1-2 inch clowns and 3 or 4 striata. Any suggest
