Yes I've heard people achieving this but I can never keep mine that peaceful. My average is around 3 - 4 months if I don't disturb them too much. The best I can get is a male together with females in sororities.
One of my current spawns is only about 9 weeks. They began biting - not flaring - at about 5 weeks. So I put in some docile adult females to "referee" them. It worked until they grew as big as the adults. And at less than 9 weeks they're starting to flare again (this time its more of a play flare, but they do bite). So I put in giant females - including mommy (daddy is too aggressive). They're rather calm .... as long as their belly's are stuffed with food. lol - I don't really care about their fins, I'm trying to power grow this batch so I'm reluctant to jar them - until they reach 2".
