    I have a friend here in Maple Ridge that had the same experience with their well last year, ran dry in June for the first time ever. Hopefully it was just a bad year for everyone and the water tables are back to normal this year.

    Yes hopefully! One with think it will be with all the snow we have had! Good news for Northern California, who are now out of their 5 year drought due to all the snow they have received in the past few weeks.

    mid Feb update. The grow outs are doing well. Colours are starting to come out a bit more. Some are bigger than others. We had a power outage the other day due to the snow storm. Thankfully it was only out about 2 hours. I keep saying I have to get myself a generator in the event we lose power for a more extended time. Another wake up call with this last outage. Time to start shopping for a good buy. Couple of pics added.

    Thanks for the update. Love the shape of the one in the first photo. Nice pattern on that one too.

    March update: All is well. Of the six original G/O's I have three remaining, each with obvious size differences, biggest, medium and small. The small one seems to be doing fine, is active and is eating, but just not seem to be putting on the pounds! I would say it is a 1/3 the size of the big one. Best guess the biggest one is getting close to 4".
    Here are some pics

    the first pic is all together. The small one is at the top of the plant, with the big on on the right and the middle size on the left just in front of the snakeskin.

    the 2nd pic is the big and small one

    IMG_3573.jpg

    the 3rd pic is the big and small again

    IMG_3574.jpg

    and last pic is the big one

    Looks like the largest one has had a major growth spurt.

    Fish are doing well. The small is staying small. It is 1/4 the size as the biggest one as you will see in the photos. Otherwise healthy and energetic and eating fine.
    Here is the comparison between the biggest one and small one

    Here is all three, big, med and small

    The big one has caught up in size to the snakeskin I got from Rick at the same time. The SS was a 3" or 3.5" at that time.
