We just got 3 Madagascan rainbows, (1 male and 2 females). The pet store said they'd grow to 3' and needed a 20 gallon. I have a tall 22 gallon and after reading up, I see that I should have an least 30 Gallo s as they'll be twice as long. My question is how quickly do they grow? Like how much in a year? They are currently just under two inches. I'm wondering how soon I should anticipate getting a bigger tank... They are quite lovely and busy.

Is it possible for them to reach 27 inches in captivity?

    Given the right environment anything is possible. They are monsters.

I have an 80gal tank. I did my reserch and have lots of sand and gravel and plenty of hiding places. I got two Dojos about 3 inches each. At first I saw both 2 or 3 times a day. Now 2 weeks in I see one if I am lucky. Also have two six inch comments and two small cwarfish plus 4 water hyacinth. Note the goldfish are very active. This is not at all what I expected from these fish. Any comments? Thanks Andy

    Your tank is severely over crowded. Dojos require pristine water conditions and gold fish produce a ton of waste.

This is my first fish experience. they're  mezmerizing!  I have never seen my loaches poop. Do they poop? I have 2 dojo loaches and 5 gold fish in a 55 gallon tank. do they hide when they poop? I watch them for hours on end and have never seen either one of them poop.  they should be pooping. I'm feeding them well i believe.  I didn't know you could get so attached to fish.  Any and all information is welcome. thanks

I have two large tanks and over the years I have bought nine botias that were sold as Botia Kubotai (polka dot botias). It turns out five are polka dots, three are histrionicas, and one is a botia I have never seen before. It is in-between the size of an polka dot and a yo-yo. Approximately, 4 ½ inches. It’s coloring is almost black with a pattern in a dark grey with one small yellow area. It snout is shorter like the polka dot, not as long as the yo-yos. Anybody have any ideas? I’ve searched everywhere and I can’t find one that looks like it.
