My father's bichirs are almost 40 cm in length.:blink: Let's see what fish I can remember he put them with.dlil said:Neither, It should be right. Ornate are also very quick growers.

No, that's absolutely not true. There are some stories out there on this site of folks who worked in fish stores who had fish turned in that had been terribly overcrowded. They may have been a bit stunted on the outsid (but only a bit) but their insides just kept growing and got all fouled up.Robotfish said:I have a question, I heard from my uncle that if you put a youn large fish in a smaller tank that it would not grow to full size. Is this true? I really want to adopt a Dinosaur Bichir after seeing them at petsmart. They are really small there, like maybe 4 inches. I was seeing about keeping him in a 10 gallon tank if he would not grow. I just want to confirm if this is true in case it wasn't. Then Id have a big problem. The tank is empty of habitants.
