Second... Boy, I thought the "Grow-it-yourself" Homeropus was slow to reach his full size, but it looks like the reverse process of returning to his original size was even slower!
Here's his full size, before I took him out of the water for good on Sept 29. It took him about 15-16 days to get this big:
But fully shrinking down to his original size has taken about 36 days. When I took the first 'growth' picture, I remember thinking that he'd started out being about 4 inches long. Over time, that idea seemed ridiculous, and I thought I must have imagined it. But take a look at the final photo:
6 days of shrinkage 16 days of shrinkage (fat starfish phase) 19 days of shrinkage
28 days of shrinkage 36 days of shrinkage 36 days of shrinkage at exactly 4" tall!
And you know, if I were to put him back in the water... he would grow all over again! \o/
