For my local community the expected minimum size at age one is today around double what it was in the 80s.
    carefully i can not speak for steve but guessing off other comments in other thread you might be on to something with last statement of

    "minimum size at age one is today around double what it was in the 80s"

    so believe he is looking at our thoughts today and will throw something at us after his 10 people respond

    My examples are not what I personally expect....they were just examples. I am looking for what people would typically realize or expect Some people may take up to 10 years to hit 30 inches while others achieve such in 6. That is fine. I just need how the growth pans out over age for individuals....80s or now really does not matter.

    All will become clear after I get some data to demonstrate a point.

    LOL....It doesn't matter as long as it is measured the same way year to year! Give us your input Ray....please!

    Keep in mind that that this exercise is NOT to see who can grow koi faster......I will be taking the averages by age to demonstrate a point.
