hi just wondering how quick rbp will grow, im looking at getting some rbp for my uk 50g, originally i wanted 5 but after seeing how big the ones at the aquarium are i could see that theyed be pretty cramped so i though id get just 3. The trouble is im getting them between 1 and 2 inches big, and in a 50g tank it wil look pretty empty, how long till they get to about 5 inches. thinking of getting maybe 5 or 6 then when there at 6 inches giving a few away, that way i can keep the best looking ones.

let me know what you guys thinks and gals, cheers.

I agree ads, get 5 or 6 then give some away when they are out growing your tank which will probably only be a couple of months.You may even lose a few through cannabalism if you are unlucky. Your 1st year they will grow very quick or untill they hit about 6" mark anyway. I started with small Reds and it is great fun watching them grow.

if i can only have 2 reds in there then i would rather just get a single rhom, iv got time to decide anyways as im starting my cycle tomorrow as well as building a decent hood for my tank.

1 rhom or 5 juvi reds????

do not feef them feeders maybe for a treat and give em plenty of other foods and keep the water clean that should make your p's grow up fast and real healthy.

too hard to decide theres so many pros and cons to think of, thinking ill probably get 5 reds and then give a couple away when they are bigger or maybe even get a much larger tank at the time and try to bread them, heck if im gunna see them go from juvi to adult then i may as well try and get them to breed. give me a challenge.

I've had them for about 20 days. What do you mean by 'wicked' ?
