    Default 12/27

    A week in and they are doing great!! I estimate they've grown between 1/8" to 1/4" and haven't stopped eating. I need to get a larger tank set up this weekend

    Here's some better pics. Not the best because they won't stop cruising for food


    A quarter to judge by...

    Looking really good Brian. At that rate they are going to get HUGE. That's the whole idea right? What size tank are you upgrading to? Keep up the good work mate.

    It's hard to guess at growth rate. All I can do is assume. I do know that a hungry juvie that gets all it can to eat has the potential to grow up to 1" per month for the first few months. Since Jack unpacked them and hasn't seen them since, I'll have to get him over and get his opinion. I've been off work for the past week and will be for another, so they're getting 8-12 feedings per day. After I go back to work they'll be down to maybe 3 per day. We'll see if things change

    Right now they're in a 20g breeder tank with 2/50% WC's per day. I'll get them into a 40 or 55 this weekend, depending on the time I have. I already have the wood cut for the 40. Just need the space

    That is the way to do it ~ actually I learned that from you, Brian.

    Good job Brian... before you know it, you'll have to tape a CD to the tank!

    There's two dates in time that they'll carve on your stone, and everyone knows what they mean.
    But what's more important is the time that is known, as that little dash there in between.
