My cousin bought 1rbp about 3 months ago he fed it mostly worms and goldfish(which are bad like i told him) but anyways Then he got a bigger tank and bought another rbp and has been feeding them mostly shrimp and worms with an occasinal g.fish. Well i got my 2 rbp about a week before christmas. They were the same size as my cousins. But after about a week i noticed mine seemed to be getting alot bigger than his 2 fish. Why are mine growing so much faster then his 2 fish. We have exactly the same size tank just curious? By the way i have been feeding mine mostly krill. My to red bellies are around 4 inches now and his still are likle 2.5 inches same length they have been since he bought them. Is it just the food i feed them or is it another factor I would like to know this. Thanks for the help.

Water parameters , proper feedings , different diets, things like this play as part in the ordeal.

how often you do water changes, powerheads, amount you feed, what you feed, general water conditions, etc.

theirs your answers then...

you have a better varied diet, feed smaller portions but twice a day, and have a powerhead

Aside from all thats been mentioned, individual genes play a factor of this as well.

we both do water changes at the same time each week cause he lives at my house. So when we clean tanks and do things like that we do them at the same time every week. Thanks for all the help guys/gals.
