Hey all. I am not familiar with the Serras, I know Rhom grow REAL slow, but I hear Spilos aren't so bad...

How long would it take 20 Golds to grow from 1.5" to 4" in a 125 gallon? How about to 6"?

How long would it take 20 Golds to grow from 3" to 6" in a 125 gallon?

Thanks!

A guy I was talking to said he had some baby golds that grew from 2" to some almost grew to 8inches over a year if you feed them right they will grow fast like that.

Are you sure it was Gold Spilos, not Gold Bellies?

I have never heard of a Spilo growing THAT fast.

Thanks for the input.

I believe it has to do with the size of the aquarium, good feeding and filtration. Nothing to do with salt, sugar, or corn
