zebra growth

Post by Bugsy » Thu Aug 29, 2013 6:28 am

In April I bought 2 young zebras, from that time I have noticed no growth in them at all. Is this normal?

They are currently in a 10 gal tank with some Amano Shrimp and 2 Zebra Snails.

I have tried veggies for them many times they will not touch it.

So I am feeding: NLS Thera A pellets, Hikari sinking wafers, Occassionally Hikari Carnivore Pellets, Hikari Algae Wafters, shrimp pellets.

I wish I could get them to eat some cucumber or zucchini but I keep trying and just taking it out everytime the next day and throwing it away.

I have looked at them and they are not thin at all, they have nice belly size not to big not to skinny but just no growth to them.

Nah they r fine! They r very slow growers and will hit a couple growth spurts in the next three years. I bought 6 quarter sized and one that was like dime sized about 2 1/2 years ago and they are now about 2 1/2 in. Long now.

Okay, thank.... :)

I know they are not very big plecos when full grown so as long as their eating and still alive I guess all is well. They are just a year old so in the next few years they should have some growth to them.

Thanks again.... :D
