How many juvies do you have.

IMO-I would move your females and use the 20gal Long NPT for the grow out tank-depending on how many juvies you have and/or their size.

I sometimes will use several different grow out tanks to separate the fry by size.

Love to see some pics...

When raising giants, you will need at least 2 growouts. It is advised to separate the bigger ones from the smaller ones (selection can be done monthly). Hopefully more space (less fry) will allow faster growth which is desired for giants. When they hit the 2" mark (body only) or when you're sure of their giant genes (specially females) you can reduce their growth while letting the males grow more.
