Can't wait to see updates on this. The size difference between all the different fish is surprising... Stupid question: Does this mean the smaller ones have a smaller chance in life or will they all even themselves out eventually?

In a growth tank, betta frys release horomones from their bodies in which stunts the growth of their siblings. I don't know why this occur but, maybe it's nature's way to minimize over populating. Due to this, it is best to change their water everyday or get a really big tank (less amount of changing) or else place the smaller frys in a different tank to help them catch up in growing.
