I didn't get a good picture when this little guy arrived. They were tired from their trip and I was anxious to get them into the QT safely. The SU was about 6" on arrival and is now about 7.5". Eating heartily.

One month later (today):

That wire is a temperature probe, I was checking the temperature in the QT water vs. the temperature in the regular pond to see how much the sun warms the water. The QT only gets sun until about 10am. The pond gets sun until 2pm. They were about .7 degrees F apart, not much, at 11am.

Of the growouts I got, this one has the widest conformation, although it is the shortest one. It has a nice wide figure (more apparent in person) and a good appetite. There is a lot of underlying sumi that does not show up well in the photos.
