On Aug.18, I purchased a .25" male Convict. Now he is nearing 1". Is that an OK growth rate?

Anyways here is what his feeding schedule is like:

Monday:
*Hikari Cichlid Staple
*Raw Scallops

Tuesday:
*Tetra ColorBits
*Krill

Wednesday:
*Cichlid Spirulina Sticks
*Hikari Carnivore Sticks

Thursday:
*Raw Fish Meat
*Hikari Cichlid Gold

Friday:
*JumboMin Food Sticks
*Omega1 Cichlid Pellets

Saturday:
*Raw Shrimp
*Bio-Blend Cichlid Pellets

Sunday:
*none

I was just wondering if I should continue feeding according to this schedule, or should I add more vegetable matter?

Gimme some input...

That growth is great, I got 13 or so really small convict fry a few months ago and the biggest ones are about .75 inches I'm not gettin near what you are. I'm only feeding them flake food though I really can't afford to feed anywhere near what you are, thats gonna get expensive. As far as the diet goes, a lot of those foods are meant to be the only food you feed your fish so you'll probably be OK. That is one lucky convict.
