Been looking at stocking my pond with these - 14 inches in the first year when feed well. I seen a mount at a boat show of the Hy Tech Speck they said it was right at 7 pounds - it was huge. Anyone have these in there pond?

I work with a fella that raises 'em and sells 'em to pond owners. I think his grew almost that fast in the first year. That's not too bad for Indiana. I'd say the info you're getting is right on the mark for southern locations.

I wouldn't reccomend any Hybrid fish for ponds! The bream called GA GIANT will ruin a pond after the first 2 years. These fish reproduce to an overpopulation of the red eye bream which are very small. I have also seen them reproduce to small coppernoses without tails. As for the Specks, he was feeding them a special algae to produce the rapid growth.
