More observations on Sid

I don't know if this is salient, or whether it has been mentioned before. But observing my sids, it seems to me they have hardly grown in length since I bought them, now about six months ago. Also, the final chain, nearest the caudal fin, seems as if it crenelates downwards (sort of off-set ) towards the tail fin, giving the impression of a stripe which actually goes through the lower part of the body. The rest of the lower body is pale and creamy. Just this one stripe, very close to the caudal, which is itself outlined very finely in a black line.
Unfortunately, still unable to count the number of barbels.
