What's the average size of an adult CRS? Is there a big difference between males and females?

like an inch or inch and a quarter I guess, never pulled em out to measure. They grow until they die, I have a huge cbs, but he's prolly 14 months old and ready to croak.
That's about right, both male and females grow to the same size.
I just looked at a ruler, and I guess I need to re-evaluate what an inch and a half actually looks like.


I'd say adults are 7/8ths to 1 inch with them dying at like 1.25 or slightly bigger/smaller
Really...they continue to grow until they die? Wow, that's interesting. What's the average lifespan? 1 1/2 - 2 years?
2 years tops. I think they live for about 1.25-1.50 years on average.

Like humans, you'll have grandma shrimp, then there are those shrimp that just kick the bucket early imo.
