My two boys were about the size of my little finger when I got them. They grew and grew and grew. After a while I had no choice but to trade them, another of those childhood dreams a saratoga. They were fed quite generously, a local friend had plenty of goldfish he was happy to part with just for the feeding show. Also cichlid pellets, ones with colour enhancer, they had no problem with those. I believe they had quite a bit to do with the fantastic colours I yielded from these beauties.
