My guy right now is about 23in. I have been using Velcro to hold shut my lids but will need to add some as he gets bigger. Any idea what’s the largest aimara have been grown in captivity vs importing large?

Glad you decided to get one. How big is it and what size tank?
The wolf is about 6-8 inches now. Definitely has a fiery attitude. Currently he is in 1/3 of a 8ft 180. Soon he will go into a 90. From there not sure if I will sell some of my fish in one of the larger tanks or redo the fish room.
How long until he out grows the 90?

At that size my guy was growing at least 1/2in a month. That gives you 6 months until he gets to 1ft and one year until he gets to 18in. I was feeding daily and had a daily drip though. Fasted growth I heard was getting one to 22in in 2 years.
