Understood. And I'd love to hear more thoughts. I guess what I was getting-in-is my excitement that it _had_ been in there ALIVE for a year, regardless of wether it consumed itself or not, etc etc... There is-in-least more of a motivation to do a study of their husbandry (measure mass, size, etc) over time, now that I know that one could-in-least be "husbanded" for a year :)

This tank was given to me. All my years of aquaria, I'd always wanted a 100 gallon with these dimensions, but never could find one from a company that I trusted (some local guys in Michigan would, but their product sucks).

And then.... This like dropped out of the sky... :)

No center brace on it either. It's 3/4" glass. Heavy sucker. Man I got that thing churning too. I can't wait to see these new little variegates I brought home last week in there!

  But was it really "growing". It's documented that in such stresses that uninio's go into a hibernation/topur stress related stage and do not grow in the physical sense but can continute to live for a long period of time, and actually will absorb shell for nutrients, like wasting itself away.
