Multi growth rate
So, I got some baby multies.
Quite a few in fact.
Got me thinkin...how fast do these guys grow? I have at least 4 spawns from 2 colonies, possibly more, but I am thinking some might have just grown faster than the others.
They range in size from week old guppy fry to teeny lines with big eggsacks squirming in the shell. Obviously those two are separate generations, but there is also an in between size that could just be the less aggressive eaters, or a middle generation. Can't really tell.Who is "General Failure" and why is he reading my hard drive?

It's likely from several different spawns. They grow extremely slow.Originally Posted by i_am_511

I have a 33g long with multi colony in it. I have no idea what the growth rate is, there is too many fry in there all at different stages of growth. Trying to spot feed the fry with foods may help increase the growth rates. At the moment I do nothing special to feed the multi fry, the feeder I use on the tank dumps nls spectrum pellets and some powdered flake.

trying to spot feed in a 125G results in nipped fingers and a very wet arm, as I found out tonight. Strange they ignore the turkey baster and go right for the soft spots, lil bastages. At least the Mbuna were predictable lol.
Thanks guys!Who is "General Failure" and why is he reading my hard drive?

Np, seems most of the tangs grow very slowly. As long as the tank is established, they seem to find enough to eat when they're tiny.Originally Posted by i_am_511
