I can get a cariba to 15" to 16" no problem...but I have never seen a red over 12" getting a red to 12" is hard in itself...They are usually much much smaller.
Do you happen to know where we could see a photo of a 16" Carib, RB32?

Have you ever grown out cariba or are you just assuming? And if you have...did they have the same tiny heads and exploding fat reserves your red have...or did they look like normal cariba?

I was asking serious questions...

However....I feel there is a certain amount of arrogance that begs response when making statements like
I can get a cariba to 15" to 16" no problem
and
caribe that big is no big deal
. I have seen one cariba that was 16" (reportedly) so to say they are no big deal is ignorant at best....and very condescending to the people that have raised cariba to a larger size....especially if you have never even attempted to grow one to that size.

You should thin your Reds before thin your shoal
