They get to about 5-6" and are really nice when fully grown, I have 5 in my 75g tank and several fry in my fry tanks.
This new treat was just purchased in the last week.. it had the spirulina listed as main ingredient with the freeze dryed brine shrimp.. and i must admit that i have been over indulging them with a couple of blocks of it per day along with the pinch of flake food i give in the morning.. they seamed to love it so much,, and with those puppy dog eyes asking for more.. well i gave in.. many times.. thanks for help , and i still will post a photo on him when i get home,, right after i stop to the store to buy two more yellow tails to go with him:)
