    they are greedy little pigs!! When I feed....they all come up and act like they have never seen food before. Cute little things!

    I'll post some updated pics this evening. They left QT yesterday and look great!! They moved into a 1300 gallon growout tank where they will not have to compete with the big fish for food. They will be joined later this spring by the little fish from Eastern that I got in Orlando.

    Just out of curiosity, have yours put on any size? Mine don't seem to be doing much yet. Of course the water temps keep bouncing like a rubber ball. One day it's 65-67 and two days later it's back into the high 50s. I'm sure looking forward to some nicer CONSISTENT weather soon!

    oops...I got so busy last night I forgot to post the new pics. To be honest, I am not sure of their growth. I did take pics in a tub with measurments in it, so it will be easy to tell once I look at the pics. They were fed, but lightly. The tank they are in now has plenty of room so they should grow fast. That's the plan anyway!!

    And here they are!! They have each grown in girth, but not a lot in length....yet. I don't like 41 at all right now. I think it may be going shiro muji on me . I do like #2 quite a bit though. Anyway...here they are, in order #41, #2, and #155.
