Thanks bro, having the 10 brothers for my simple set up. House them in a 4' tank and hope to see them grow well. Any tips to make their kok bigger, I already raise the PH to 8 and add in salt, is there anything else I miss out? Please share with newbie ok, thanks in advance

for the hump of the males it will develop as they grow older. as long as you feed them well and proper fronts are not like LH whereby you just keep pumping for the hump to be big, they are still very much or in fact, all natural fishes. thus their hump size only develops with age and size, so dont need to rush for that and as bro frontosa mentioned, just keep the set up simple and groom them well
