    Default Dilemma

    I was not planning for this to be hardÖ I didnít think it would even be a tough decision??? That is, until I spent some time with this group, last night, and captured these stills.

    These F1 Mikula juvies are from Tauís first spawn: a grow-out group that I held back, for myself, in a 72-gallon bow front tank. A few months ago, the largest ones were pushing four inches; so, I sold off ten of them to make room for rest. Hereís my dilemma: the remaining 11 are getting big (average is probably over 3-inches and largest are in the 4-inch class). A 4í grow-out tank is only good for so long. I donít want to start another 6-foot tank; therefore, I assumed that I would just sell them, right???

    After sitting in front of this tank and taking a bunch of pics, I am having a hard time with the thought of selling them. Hereís the reasons whyÖ

    I'm not generally a fan of Fronts - but those are nice. Sell them and get some real fish!
