I like to start off the new year with my new thread on Caranx. I got this group from Wes (Fugupuff) three months ago @2". There are a few Caranx Sexfasciatus (Bigeye). This will be my third time raising Caranx with improvements made each time.
I will add to this thread as I go.

New @ 2"

Today @ 6"

Trevallies are very active fish requiring a high protein diet. They're constantly swimming and eat like pigs. Good filtration is a must. Poop is very fine and not chunky.



Mechanical filter is dark brown after a few days.

what do you do with them when they outgrow the tank? eat them?
if people thought so in the earlier years, I doubt anyone would be even setting up anything larger than a 10 gallon.

We are monsterfishkeepers, we keep monsters and in the best way.
