Had these guys a bit over 2 weeks now and the growth has been amazing they have gone from under 2cm to over 5 which seems amazing until you think about their adult size of 45cm which they can reach in 6 months I'm getting a little worried how do you house 7 of these little monsters lol.Image may contain: plant, nature and outdoor

Are you kidding?? Up to 45cm. 

That is amazing and they are already looking really cool. How big a tank do you have them in?

no not kidding they are huge when adult. at the moment they are in a rather small division about 40cm square at a guess they will outgrow it in a month maybe 2 if they are playing nice. I'm will need to evict the bottom tank of the rack then and remove the dividers giving maybe a pair the 5ft tank which may be just enough space for them to get along in.

Ahh i googled them up and the common name is Cherabin. I have caught a few of these in the past but they never seem to make it to a tank. Mine seemed to all go a bright red. Enough said.
