      Hi
      Is there such a gene in the market that promotes growth of the entire host? Like a growth inhibitor. ? If so what’s it like?
      Much appreciated 😀

      hmm dont u mean growth enhancer? to promote growth.

      If you are talking about growth hormones, yes, that is pretty common. For your fishes, administering some growth hormones is much easier than the a genes.

      You ask if there is one gene to control size, I’m going to say that there are many many genes, all regulated differently. The reason I am suggesting growth hormones is because the hormone itself is a regulator for many of those genes.

      A list of plant hormones. I think Auxins are for growth, but there could be others.

      Thanks mate
      I think Gibberellins is one too because some time last year i heard or Gibberilic acid. Its simulates the plant to make more growth hormone.
