I have noticed that my Harvey's Ck Signifers that I raised outside in the
swimming pool in summer did 2 things -
First the adults didn't like the heat and gradually turned "geriatric" and
perished.
Second, the fry have become mature at a smaller size and are not growing to
anything like the size of their parents which is a little disappointing as
the parents were about 3 inches TL and magnificent
