Very glad to hear some insight like this. I was considering getting a trio to put with 6 filament barbs, was worried they would beat up the barbs and outgrow them quickly. I’m highly considering grabbing them while tuic has them inLooking well. Good to see at 10-11” it still looks the same as the 2 I have at 5-6”. Have had them about 5 month now and growth is exceedingly slow (very similar to the growth on my mahseers) maybe 1” in this time. The two are very happy to shoal with the 8 filament barbs. Was expecting growth on the Hampalas and the mahseer more akin to lemon fin or tinfoils so this has been a pleasant surprise to not have to rehouse them to the pond already.
