It's more like their bioload is much higher than fishes. I never had any problem with fishes in the same tank.

Hey guys! How fast can i expect a 3-4" piece to grow? Also, does the sex of the PNT determine how fast they will grow? Thanks!

Tsk tsk

Typically the growth rate is about 1 inch a year +/- but there can be sudden growth spurts.

Sex does not not determine growth rate from what I know

Thanks Elindra! As for temperament, would sex determine aggressiveness and what not?
