They actually a bit boring when so small. They get much nicer when they grow bigger. I've had 4. My first pair (Wich actually started to pair) grew fast. Like very fast.
Then i had a velvet outbreak from not qt a fish.
Then i replaced them. The ones i have now. The one grew quick and his streamer tail is almost fully development. His partner i added about a year after him is a bit stagnent. His growing but not as quickly. So i think it depends on the fish and the cercomstances. So out of the 4 i had (3 grew fairly quickly, one a bit slower) But i have a cispition if you have two one grows quicker than the other because it wants to be dominant and change sex.

Just a side note.....they grow BIG.....lol Ive seen adult ones thats fully grown out. They get big....very big. Some time ago petstop had a pair in their coral bank that was actually spawning

They awsome little angels...would have been a win if they stayed that small. I have another wattanabei angel wich i think was stunned when they caught them. Ive had him for 3years now and he hasn't grown by a mm. Is still exactly the same size.
