    that is too much food. I would limit to maximum 10each a day. They will eventually get bigger, but the feeder fish aren't going to instantly make them huge. They are just like people and it'll take them a year or two for them to grow. For maximum growth...

    ♦Perform weekly water changes

    ♦Feed them a varied, nutritious diet

    ♦Give them a large tank of at least 40-55 gallons

    ♦Good food includes: shrimp, live ghost/cherry shrimp, feeder fish, frozen prepared foods, raw fish, earthworms, beef heart.

    the thing about when fish eat is that their stomachs get bigger because they are still digesting all that food so yea theyre gonna get a little bigger

    Oh ya, they grow before your very eyes. &_&

    You'll see their stomachs swell of course but that's about it. Do your fish a favor and make sure the feeders are at least disease free.
