He has done a good job already and has only been in the tank for a little over 12 hours.

I have a 29 gallon tank. I'll keep him for now I guess and then move him later. How long does it take them to get big?

I see how they can big so fast all that he does is eat. He moves from plant to plant to glass then back to the plants nonstop.
