    I see a lot of variability in when young fish turn gold. I've had new

    fish as a result of breeding for the last two summers, some turn gold

    before the end of their first year, while others seem to take a lot

    longer. For example one of the oldest (2 years & 3-4" long) is only now

    starting turn gold.

    black! Actually, we have had several take that long...genetics?
