Puggle Posted January 29, 2006 Report Share Posted January 29, 2006 "They only grow to the size of the tank" I don't know how many times I've heard this lately - that if you keep a fish in a small tank, it will stay small no matter what its potential size is. I've never been game to try it. What happens? Do they stop growing (with no health problems)? Do they die prematurely, before they reach their full size? Do they become horribly deformed and die when their outside stops growing but their insides don't? I think they'd grow a bit slower because they're not in optimal conditions, then die prematurely. But I don't know for sure. Have there been any scientific studies on it? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
