Default Update on my Petro Sp. Red Siamese Twin

They have grown enough so I released them into the main colony. They are doing well and hang out by the rocks. The Grown petros do not bother them.

Very cool Sir. Nice work on growing them out. Can you image them full grown at this point?

I'm guessing, when they(it) gets large enough, it should be possible to tell if they could be safely separated. maybe using some of the medication thats used to sedate fish to transport them. As long as there isn't any internal organs compromised.
If they are females it would be a win,win.

Even if they could be separated they are definitely stunted in their growth. Given their age, hey should be twice the size they are.

Are they both eating or just one of them? Maybe they are sharing nutrition or the bottom one is (assuming one is the dominant swimmer) mooching nutrients...
