My King, Tyler, has grown almost a full inch since I got him at the end of the summer (over 3 1/2 inches now). He was super stressed when I got him and in poor health. It took awhile, but he now has the full run of his own 10 gallon and plenty of places to hide out and swim about. And he's got a SUPER appetite! Very full of personality! I'd love to have another, but I'm running out of places to keep good sized aquariums and plugs for the equipment. He's my second of 6 total. I'll try and post a picture of him soon.
