:The amazing and beautiful As mellow as she is huge...
I took this measurement today by gently pressing a piece of plexiglass over her in a coil and tracing her spine with a marker, then mesuring the trace. The weight, although accurate, represents her in a very gravid state...she'll proably drop about 5 lbs when she lays. I think a good weight for her in a non-gravid state will be about 11 or 12 lbs. I've had this cb female yellow tail for only about 1.5 years, but she's about 8 years old. The previous owner lived in S. Miami FL and never had any breeding success...blaming the warm winter.
Anyway...she's full of eggs now, keep your fingers crossed for good eggs!
