Hello all,

I would like to ask for you help bought this little fella as marulioides but I cannot clearly ID him. Thinking of striata.
Also my second question, what should be an ideal growth rate for a snakehead? I got him in december 3" and today he is 5,5" what should be the expected growth with him?
Thanks in advance

Look like striata. Not much info them but will be a foot by 1 year or less. Slow after that.
