I want to get these. question is about the growth of these guys. based on normal diet and tank requirements how long would it take for 1 or 2 of these to out grow a standard 55 gallon.

I'm going to get a 125 for these eventually but i was curious to see how much time I have before I have to set up a larger tank ?

I, personally, have never kept these.

With that said, I tried to do some search regarding growth rate and all I could.find out was that the fry, once hatched, can grow to be about 3/4 in. within 6 weeks.

Also, it is said that a 125 gal. tank is the absolute minimum that this species should be housed in once they reach adults due to the fact that they grow quite large.

Thats all I seen also. I had a bredding pair a long time ago . but I got them when they were already monsters. and I kept them alone in a 90 at first then to a 125. theres a strong chance we are moving to S.C so I may now until we move.

if it happens, welcome to SC.. two decent places to buy stock.. bobs is Augusta and fishy business in columbia.. as for the original question, three to five months.. max.. after that you may stunt their growth...
