    That little guy looks precious. The big one--Wow! 9"? All of mine are tater tots in comparison. I hope you can get closer clearer pics next time. I know...it's a bear with the little ones. Try using your zoom if you have one.

    I just can't wait until the 7th when I get mine. I am betting that my #140 will be big have watching others, Which means I'll be proven wrong.

    Size Matters?

    What an amazing difference in size!

    Wishful thinking!!! I am curious to see if I'm right down the road. But they both are pretty wide through the shoulders even though the photos don't show that very well. Even the wee one has is nicely proportioned body line - wide through the shoulders/head compared to the rest of the body. The larger one has a good body form, but the pecs concern me...look male to me. But in two years we'll all know for sure right? LOL

    Just a quick update...both our babies survived our recent "mishap" and are thriving well now. Amazing how they rebounded. The smaller of the two was actually laying on his/her back and twice I pulled the little guy thinking it was dead. That lastest for a few days then suddenly he/she was swimming upright and then starting to eat. Within a few days after that you wouldn't even know it has almost died. He/she is still pretty small, but the larger one is growing nicely so far. The smaller one has to really fight for food with the bigger fish in the same tank right now.

    So it looks like we're still in the contest....so far at least!!!
