Fish Growth

Hey i purchased 2 jaguar cichlids today Parachromis Managuensis and they are maybe an inch and a half long. They are currently in a 10 gallon tank and i will transfer them to larger tank once they get bigger. Im feeding them frozen dried brine shrimp from petsmart with very high protein %. Im just curious to know what their average growth rate is? Also if anyone has any tips they can provide me from hands on experience with this specific species i would preesh. Also here is the link to a video of the tank on 5/24/10 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8NXtQPsze50

In healthy specimens, I would expect about one inch of growth per month.
Care would be same as for Oscar you inquired about in another thread. The fish you have will need larger tanks sooner,,rather than later.
Would not expect jaguars to get along after they reach the five month mark .

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.
