I might just start moving/selling them locally at 8 week
To reduce the number down so I can have more tank space so they can grow out better

If you don't have the tank space that sounds reasonable.

Do you have photos of their growth so far?

Hey Curly, well come back.

2.5cm in 1.5 months is too small? Wow . . . 70+ of them in 10g, you need bigger tanks.
I agree with everyone, bigger space = better growth.

Are they a sibling pair? Ive found that my F3 spawn is growing really slow so Im assuming its inbreeding slowing down their growth

IME slow growth could be due to bad genetics of parents. Inbreeding till F4 has never influenced fry growth. In fact I had an F3 that was almost as big as a half giant after 5 months and was able to breed it to a giant female (fry are 2-3cm total; forgot age). To think it was a runt in it's batch, really surprised me.

Idk if they r sibling
Bought them at a pet store
I never went beyond f2
Always buy/trade a new fish to breed with
N I never stick with one color for more then a year and a 1/2
Yeah I usually put them in a bigger tank by now but it's all use up with my flowerhorn
