I raise alligator snappers right now. I saw some real small softshell hatchlings at a swap last weekend. I believe they are "common" softshells from wisonsin. Not the florida ones. I am fascinated by these guys and woudl like to give them a try. Can you guys give me an idea about the growth rate. The good things about the alligators is that they grow slow. I have limited water space . Just a general idea of growth rate over a few years would be good.
