Thank you. In a way I don't really look forward to them getting too big. Right now that 3 Stripe can zoom in crevesses of the live rock that you would bet he couldn't. It's fun to watch. Looking at the one in the fish store made me realize that at that size there would be restricted to the mid and larger openings of the rock set up. Made me think that I would have to put that into consideration when I added coral ... to leave them spaces ... pathways.
I have a 34 gal
. ... so I know this will not induce growth however in 2 months the crabs have gone from specks to being able to make out legs and such. I am about to do my second shell change for them with about 1/4 to a 1/3 inch opening. I don't know how this falls into paramiters.
So best guess ... given best case ... what would you say a growth rate would be for a 34gal?
