Yes, mine is bigger than either of yours. Hard to get a good measurement, he does not stay still at all.

Thanks.
Once in a while, I tape a small linear segment of 4-6 inches piece of paper right in the middle lower of my tank. With this, as the fish swim about, I can fairly accurately estimate their length.
You be surprise how much you underestimate your fish size without it, at least I was.

Are you measuring the fish length, with or without the tail?
