RE: Size in the wild vs. aquarium

I think the wild vs aquarium size thing is based on whether the fish
have changed genetically (If you release some aquarium tiger barbs into
the Amazon, will they grow to 5 inches?  No.), or whether you are
providing fish in aquaria more ideal living conditions than they
received in the wild (like the best food and lots of it, ample space, no
predators, lack of seasonal fluctuations, and longevity).  So, the
answer is yes...and no...
