His tank is a marineland 120H 60x18x26 with a sump/wetdry
Sorry for the dirty glass, just set this tank up in a 24 hour rush because the 55 gal sprung a leak.

The pellets are the only key to my success so far, not having to deal with fillets and the mess associated makes it far easier (especially for the homeowners) to take care of him.
Had the flu today and yesterday, so the substrate and bigger sump will have to wait.

As far as i know, the little guy was captured at the same time my other Rhom was... so it could be a Xingu Rhom, but i cant prove that so hes just a "Rhom" to me. I really wasnt a fan of my Xingu... Super shy, never ate (in the 2 years i had him, would only eat salmon 3 times a year literally) and was the most boring fish ever.
I got rid of the Xingu when I got into saltwater (with 2 or 3 other rhoms i had) but was so attached to him because he accepted pellets, i found him a new home at one of my friends. Its actually kinda neat not seeing him EVERY day, because you really notice size difference. For 3 or 4 months I didnt have time to stop over and check on him, and BAM hes noticeably bigger. His tank for most his life (to this point) was a 55 gal, with 2 large HOB filters, and few water changes because nobody will use the gravel vac, or put their hands in his tank. They keep up on top-offs and watching the temp, and call if anything looks off or something cool happens.
Heres his approx timeline, and his size when i moved him:
6 months in a 10 gal to 1"
6 months in a 33 gal 3"-
2 years in a 55 gal 8-9"
And some way old pics of my other rhoms
only real pic i have of the Xingu:
Rhom i got at 1", grew to 4 or 5 and then mysteriously died
I will stop digging now, but... Yeah

It will be cool to see your Rhom reach 17+" to get a good timeline on the growth cycle.
