Thanx Brian. My plan is to get a group out of them. Can you advise me how long will it take them to grow from 2inch to 5inch with perfect diet and water condition. Want to know from peoples experience rather then just thinking should grow a inch a month if you know what I mean.
I'm buying this 8footer tank only cos of them otherwise don't need a big tank right at this Moment. Oh by the way took all the fish out if my 6foot to give red devil a chance to breed. Fingers cross they do it for me lol.
