Wow dude, he's growing like crazy! can't wait to see him in a few months! I agree 100% on the black sand, can't beat the look, it just focus's so well on the fish color.

I'm trying to grow him out a little quick so I feed him 7 days a week twice a day (morning, and then night) his staple diet is hikari gold which I feed every morning and then during night is when he gets a treat, which are crickets, meal worms, blood worms, omega one shrimp pellets, carrots, or veggie wafers, I try to give him a different treat everyday, I have 2 aquaclear 110's on my 55 gallon with a wavemaker as well, and I do two 50% water changes a week, so I think all of those factor into his quick growth

True but remember I have a 260 to cover a 110 and a 55, 20!! thats a lot more than $38!

and I had gravel before from petsmart and paid a good bit for !

I like the natural look of my sand for 7 dollars and at this stage in fish keeping I would rather spend money on fish... I have around 30 now :pinch:
