smbass, do you think the 6" brookies would stay that small in an aquarium where they weren't food limited? I have wondered if they are that small in the feeder creeks not because of genetics, but because of food availability.

I believe that he was using a somewhat larger tank, but he also was keeping something like 6-8 individuals in a single tank.
I think 4-6 in a 55 would be tight, but I am no expert in trout.

If they have enough food and cold 02 water the trout will grow.
Most wild populations are small due to competition for limited forage.
In areas with good forage (think tailwaters) the trout grow big and plump given time.
