    Default Challenge update 11.24 w/ measurement

    Hello all, we are half way through the challenge and everything is going well. No changes in routine. I decided to take a measurement at this point as I already had to put a few of them out for sample scrapings. There is nothing wrong with them just something I do from time to time. As it turns out,it looks like I will be needing a larger pair of calipers as these guy are already over the max of 6 1/8" of my calipers I hope you enjoy the update.

    I would figure them to be 8 1/2 to 9 months old at this point. I received them at 2 1/2" I guess they were somewhere between 2 to 3 months old. Thank you Harriett

    very nice Kenny. you already know how i feel about your contest fish . i have some juvies that i would place roughly at the same age as yours which are also the same size. i cheated though, i got them at 4" , yours were more of a challenge.
