I think the largest one (which you can see in the photo) is about 15 millimetres. The smallest one is about 10 millimtres but the colour is much lighter.. More whiter. At what stage do they start growing ventral fins? And at what stage can I start feeding them fry food? I have some powdered food that I use to feed my guppy fry.

You can try feeding them the fry food now - will be difficult to wean them off of live food though. So may have to mix it in with their other foods for a while and hope they get to liking it.

This may help in seeing the "average" growth sizes.. it does vary based upon how much you feed, water change, temp, etc.

Ah.. Thanks for that. The chart is very useful. I think comparing to the chart they're about the right size.... Can't wait to see more colour and formation in the bodies...

How's your fry coming along?

Doing good! I took pictures yesterday, will probably upload them sometime tomorrow.. they are right on schedule too :) But I have so many, probably going to start culling shortly to give the bigger ones a better chance.. over 200 in a 10g, it's getting crowded!
