Statistics (Age to Growth Ratio)

Post by jpboscar3 »

Hi Guys,
How about a timeline for the growth rate of the L-46’s? This would be very helpful in determining if our fry are developing at a normal rate. For example: if my six month old Zebra is only ¼” and should be ½” then I would know that something’s not right and I can then take corrective actions. I have looked on our site and can not find this information. I may just be looking in the wrong categories. I have found Fry and their ages, but no sizes. I guess what I am looking for is statistical information regarding size to age ratio. I have many more ideas on this topic and would be happy to contribute to this forum.

Thanks, Jeff

This question has come up before, but it's hard to give a definite answer as hey don't have a steady growth curve, but rather grow in leaps and bounds.

But... they grow rapidly the first two months, then slow down until they are about 5 months old, when they have another growthspurt. They should be around 3-4cm long by then. At one year old, about 5-6cm, then at two about 7-8.

Hope this helps
