N*A*M Posted October 12, 2005 Report Share Posted October 12, 2005 Hi all You might know that I have a spawn of kribensis young at the moment. They are about 2.5-3 months old. The biggest one is now about 5cm long and most of them (+60%) are over 3.5cm. But there are still about 20 odd that are really small... like 1.5cm long and they just won't grow. They're all currently in a 100L grow out tank with some corys, a loach and a BN. As fry, I started off by feeding them frozen bbs, sinking pellets (crushed into a fine powder). They all grew evenly to about 1cm. Then I increased the coarseness of the crushed food a little and some of them started overtaking the rest in growth. Then I added frozen bloodworms to the menu and most of them started growing very quickly. The catch here is that only the bigger ones could eat the worms - thus increasing the size differences. I am still supplementing their diet with the crushed dry food and they all eat it, but the little ones just won't grow. I also feed sinking pellets and algae wafers for the other fish and the kribs eat that as well. At their current age, what should their average size be? Maybe I just have some fast growers that make the rest look like runts? I have thought about removing the runts and giving them their own grow out tank. What do you think?
