he's smaller than his (well cared for) counterparts because he has to spend a good deal of energy burying himself in the substrate, running from the net, dodging tank mates hungry mouths! :lol:

Stress slows the growth of a fish a good deal. I've only found low oxygen and illness to be worse on growing fry!
