Yeah..I've honestly never had an issue with"jumping" fish..*knock on wood* haha.. ya..I set up some pvc piping and got some more log like decorations set up for him now..so hes much more happy:)haha...

I should measure him at some point just to see how long hes gotten haha..he doesnt seem to large to me yet anyway..how fast do they grow do you know?..roughly anyway.

not sure but i think in the right conditions and diet i think it will grow quite quickly.live food and spacious tanks seems to be a start

so again like anything..it all depends on individual circumstances..but best situation will always produce better results..fair enough haha..

I know he's grown larger..my mother came over the other day and was like WOW HES HUGE haha..over exxaggerating a bit?..ill try and make a vide of him/pictures tonight when I feed him:)

Thanks again,
Kat
