@sourav. YYup i know it will outgrow the tank in an year. Have plans of upgrading the tank to a 8 feeter. But for now will keep it. And I have not received the fish yet. Its been kept at my source point, as I am arranging the tank and doing the necessary things to keep it well.
Hope to give you an FTS in a week or so
