I agree with what Torontoraptorsfan said about growth rates. My gold face comps bred last year, I raised about 150 fry. Everything you read about comps says they grow so slowy, including the fry. I didn't really find this, I had a similar growth rate after 12 weeks, maybe not quite as much. But it was certainly a different experience to what I been led to expect. They were no more slow than any other fish I have raised. I was doing a 50% water change every other day or so, the fish didn't mind the relatively large volume change and remained hungry and perky even straight after the changes.

Good work so far Furcifer, commit yourself to a regular water change / cleaning regime and you will reap the rewards.

When I was raising my Calvus black fry I had daily schedule to syphon the detritus and 5-6 meals a day plus water changes 3-4 times a week. I gotta say, they were growing faster than my friend's :lol:

Good luck. :thumb:

Thanks again everyone. the fry will be moving in to there 20 long today. Also still have all 83, have not lost a single one :D . I'm going to be doing a 25% water change every third day and they will be givin NLS grow "crushed up" twice a day and cyclops once a day, and also once a week some frozen baby brine.

norman29 i'm not sure when they started breeding, mine are W/C. the male is around 4 inch and the female is about 2 1/2 inch. In the past I have had some F1 comps breed at 2 inch.

Here's a new pick before the go in there new home.
