growth differences

I have two common snappers that were born at the end of August...and one is quite larger than the other. My question is: Does the sex of the snapper affect the growth rate? Or is it just the turtles' personality? I have noticed that the larger one seems to like his fish more than the smaller one. The larger one is quite darker than the smaller, lighter snapper. The smaller snapper seems only to like the reptimin pellets.....(he/she will eat only 1 fish or 1 cricket, sometimes not even finishing it, but the pellets disappear quickly) Any thoughts? I'd attach a picture, but I still don't know how to post it. I will add one to the website I have for them. It will be the last photo- #24

Also, if you can explain how to post a pic on here i would appreciate it.

Thanks for your input....

...Phew
