It was in this stockpile 4 PR

I already tested
a -50% population trait (with same priority than other population traits, very early IIRC) to balance Sly, and that failed miserably. Maybe a -50% population malus could work if you give it less priority
As indicate here you suspected, and as I noted in my comment linked above, getting the -50% pop malus to match the gas giant pop size of 4 would likely require adjusting the priority, and yes, it would need to be a later priority.
Anyway, I didn't think this suggestion about differentiating GGs had nothing/much to do with the Sly population problem
As noted in that github discussion, agrrr3 (Ophiuchus) said he'd look at introducing a new metabolism for the Sly as an alternative to the gas giant pop size 4.
Geoff has merged the PR a few hours ago, though it appears to me that he left the GasGiant size = 4 part out. I think that the -50% pop should work out fine with the right priority, I'll experiment with that some.
Right now I need to rush and put in a couple more commits dealing with the Sly & GasGiant Supply changes that were in that PR, see if I can get them in before Vezzra makes this weeks build. (The Sly PR that got merged a few days ago was dealt with the previous Sly related changes, not these new ones).
