Growing size of African cichlids

Recommended Posts

no i didnt mean do they grow to the actual size of that tank, i mean that some fish and reptiles only grow a certain size depending what size tank they are in, for example, if a fish lived in a 4 foot tank or a pond, would my 4 foot tank not let the fish grow to their full potential??

Benjack, since no one seems to get what you're saying. In a way yes it will. It won't completely stunt their growth but it will just make them grow lot slower than normal. If you want them to grow to full potential your better off buying a 5 x 2 x 2, or some sort of 6 footer to let them grow to their full adult size.

DFF he was just asking if having Africans in a 4 footer would restrict their growth because the tank wasn't big enough. Not trying to get them to grow to 4 foot.

I mean goldfish generally stop growing so that they dont outgrow their surroundings, not the case with africans im afraid.
