Kribensis fry growth rate

Postby Jodi76 » Tue Nov 06, 2001 9:31 pm

I am temporarily raising a couple of kribensis fry for a friend of mine. His krib pair had a 2nd batch of fry and didn't want these around anymore, so they were rescued to my tank for the time being. I've been searching for some information about how fast they grow, but although I've found a lot of information about how to take care of them, and spawn them(not really useful at this point [img]images/smiles/icon_smile.gif[/img] ), I've found nothing specific about their growth rate. Does anyone out there who's raised them know about how fast they will grow? Right now they're probably about 1/2".

Thanks for the help.

Jodi, I used to raise these things, but for the life of me I can't remember any hard data on growth rate. Seems like they grew at an 'average' speed, whatever that is. They didn't grow superfast, and they didn't take months to get any size on them either.

Since the adult fish is < 4 inches long, they probably wont grow very fast.

Sorry I couldn't be more helpful.

They should be young adult size, about 2 inches or so, in 6 months. Give or take a bit.

Mine grew very fast.And were about an inch in just a few months.They slowed down when they hit 2" though.I traded them in after that though.
