Same here, would also like to see an update
Nothing much to update really, I don't know why I didn't reveal what was in the box but it was three largemouth bass and a European eel lol. But yeah can't really tell you fellas anything new, we're in full on winter now so they are on the bottom of the pond and not eating.

The Wels made it through hibernation well and have resumed feeding, although quite slowly and without much appetite - it will take well into may for the water to be warm enough for their usual voracious appetites.

Meanwhile here are some of their pondmates - excuse the algae, the stuff tends to pop up in winter when my plants are dormant and then it floats around looking terrible in spring.

Quick update - I sold the albino and both Bass as I was on the brink of getting out of the hobby completely. Still have the normal morph, but as of yet I'm still unsure whether I will have the opportunity to keep caring for it next year as my personal situation is a bit complicated right now.
It's almost impossible to take pictures of, so I grabbed a video of it chowing down on some sprats and took some screenshots.
