If any one can help me i had my green terror for 8 months now and he maybe grewan inch i got him at 3ins and he is about 4in. he is in a 75 gallon great filtration and gets along and eats well with my other fish
They grow very slow compared to other medium to large cichlids....with that being said....I bought two in Jun at 1" and the biggest one reached 4.5" before jumping out of its new home on Christmas (ungrateful)! the other might be a little over 4" so yes they grow slow but your fish sounds a bit on the extreme side of slow? I have talked to other people that claim their fish reached 10" in a year so I guess it's the luck of the draw. I'm curious to read other people's comments....all in all I wish you the best and maybe your fish will hit a growth spurt soon!
i got my male at 3". in a year in a 65 he grew an inch. i moved him to the 125 and he is now over 9" a year later. it seems that a high protien diet and lots of room is the key (at least for me). be patient, it's worth the wait
