BG can grow to a 1lb+ and around 11"-12". That of coarse is with optimal conditions and most likely feeding quality feed. Moving them to a new pond would be "depending" on your goals for your new pond.

I moved a number of BG from my main pond over to my old pond where I had a lot of GSF. I moved fish large enough so the GSF could not eat them.

They are doing fine and I'm now getting some BG recruitment in that pond.

I moved everything from 2-3" all the way up to about 5-6". Some of the smaller ones may have got eaten, but based on sizes I catch now I think some of them made it.

Don't know what your goals are or what fish you already have, but you can move BG successfully if it fits your goals. They need to be big enough to escape any predators you already have in the pond and I personally would avoid moving really large BG (over about 7") as I think they would have a harder time acclimating than younger fish and fewer years left for spawning before getting too old.
