Well, I got one as a freebie in december from Reptist, it was 1/2" at the time. It's now 1.75" and I think it's in premolt again, so.. I think that's a pretty good growth rate.

I'm not sure on how fast they grow, but i had mine for 4months. It has molted 4times, usually once every month.

Thanks! I can't stop staring at her. :D

Also, my house is around 75 degrees and I feed twice a week... same conditions you describe, kristal.

I got mine at 3/8" in February of 2004 and she's now a healthy 5". It took her about a year to grow from 3/8" to 3".

Don't worry, it won't take long at all. They grow fast and eat like crazy, mine was about an inch when I got it last year around the beginning of June. It is now almost 5 inches.
