    Strange growth in front of pectoral fin behind gill plate. HELP PLZ

    I have had this convict for about 3 years. I love him. He has been the tank Boss of his tank regardless of mates. Needless to say he has killed much larger fish overnight a few times.

    EBJD growth and true max size

    I see dozens of posts about EBJD, but it seems quite hard to find any full grown adults. In fact I find it near impossible to find pictures of any much bigger than 4”. This is mine, a little over 5”, around 14 months old. If anyone has any pictures of bigger ones, or can give a good idea of...

    Oscar growth tips

    Tank #6 in my fish room is on order right now, but the stocking is set, it’s a 120g (4’x2’x2’) and I have an FX6 with some pre cycled media in it waiting. I’m putting a single Oscar in there in honor of my late family member who bred them for decades. There are so many varying statements out...

    My bichirs are growing really slow

    I have had a Senegal and a “gold dust” bichir for about a year now and they are still pretty small. The Senegal has grown from a little baby to about 5” or so, and he out grown the gold dust in circumference and length even though the gold one was bigger originally when I got him. The gold one...

    Cichla Update #2

    So Nitro's been getting bigger, off of the Hikari carnivore pellets and shrimp pellets I've been feeding him. He's not as crazy as he used to be, but he's right up at the front of the tank when it's feeding time. He's afraid of my datnoid-my small, shy datnoid-for some odd reason. He's an...

    Peacock Bass Growth Update #1

    I started a growth thread for my pbass, Nitro, a little over a month ago, so I thought I'd update you all on his status. He's grown a little in the a-little-over-a-month-long period. I've turned him off of live food as suggested, and he enjoys eating Hikari sinking carnivore pellets. He gets...

    Mastacembelus frenatus Growth Rate

    I am hoping for my LFS to get these in pretty soon. I am curious what their growth rate is, as I have some older feather-fin cats (the largest is maybe 6-7 inches with a mouth between 1/4 and 1/2 an inch) I would like to house with them, and based on what I have seen of juvenile starry nights...
