I'll take a guess, top one dog food, middle one aquamax, and bottom one aquamax with ground-up GSF.

It's hard to tell from the picture, but all three fish are actually loaded with pellets.

How long will you toy with us mere mortals? Does someone have to guess each pellet food correctly?

Why don't you just let us know what the first fish was raised on so we can stop using that feed.

Believe it or not, that top fish is a CSBG and it's bigger than the average fish of it's age. The fish in his tank don't like their food when it's on the top. The fish in the other two tanks will take the more preferred food off the top even when the water is super cold.

I don't know why. Maybe they just like it that much.

How long does it take for a 1" CSBG to get to 5" or so?

Thank you P. Buckley.
