I have 2 Uaru who were about 1.5 inches when I got them. I give them a steady diet of Freeze Dried Bloodworms, Frozen Bloodworms, Freeze Dried Tubafex Worms, Tetra Color, Hiraki Cichlid Staple Gold/Excel, and NLS. Sometimes I supplement with Algea Wafers because it seems like exercise to them, but I prefer to keep my tank well planted and let them feast on the real deal.

In 10 months 1 of the Uaru is about 3 inches and the other is about 5. Definitely the 5inch is dominant at feeding time which would show this extra growth.

My tank is only an 80 gallons, which is sadly just a hair too small, and I also keep the Temperature at 80 - 82 F. So far they seem very happy.
