    Has anyone ever grown mono sebaes to full size (over 8")? If so, do you have any secrets to your success of getting them huge? I am growing them in brackish now, about 1.010, and slowly increasing salt content. Any other advise?

    ive only got mine 3 months and they went from 1.5inches to 4inches and thats in fresh water...

    i was hoping to keep them for about 2yrs before tranfering them to a marine setup but at the rate they going im wondering how long they can survive in my fresh water setup.

    apparently they grow quite fast in a tall tank im told, whether there is any truth to this i wouldnt know.

    Feed heavily and change lots of water. A protein skimmer is a good idea as well.
