Re: burn bright short life


Uwe Römer studied this & wrote a paper on it
several years ago. His findings were that males
tended to live longer than females. The average
life span was around 2 years, but some survived to
be over 5 years. I personally prefer to purchase
juveniles and let them mature in my tanks.
