Growth rate

How much time does a baby blood parrot take to be 5 or 6 inches long?


It depends on the water quality - if they are being poisoned by ammonia or nitrites, it may never happen. If they don't eat much, it will also take longer. Ours took about 3 years, if you are counting the tail. To get really big and thick, like ours ended up took about 6 years.
