    Y Pattern!

    Well Cricket,

    You're the one who got that SU with the great "Y" pattern on the face! I will have my eye on you too!

    18

    Fish number 18 has such a great Checker board pattern! I was so intrigued by the unique facial pattern on your other fish that I over looked just how much I admired you pick number 18!

    I checked my records and #18 was my number 4 overall selection. I will keep my eye on your grow out forum for more reasons than one!

    I suspect that the female fish grow slower in the beginning stages of life. I are you hoping for female or male in number 18? Sounds like a silly question in a grow out challenge but I know some of the SU grow out participants want males. Curious to know...........

    Cricket's Grow Out Info

    I would like to add new information.

    Unfortunately we lost both #18 and #31. #18 was doing great one day - eating - the next day it pine coned and died. #31 developed some ulcers and fin rot.

    #110 is still alive. We moved this fish from the quarantine tank to the rock pond today. Approx 1200 gallons.

    Measured this fish, 07/11/08 8 1/4".

    I realize I am late in posting these pictures and updated information, but I thought we had until the end of July to supply the needed information.

    The #110 is a great looking fish. It was high on our list.

    I'm sorry to hear about the pine cone and ulcers. We lost #157 two weeks ago to pine cone (dropsy) and now we are fighting for our lives with ulcers and fin rot. Good luck to #110.

    I have updated the data portion of this thread.

    I was able to put a picture of our grow out shiro utsuri as our avitar.

    I am not able to download the pictures as an attachment.

    We enjoyed this grow out.
