i would love to see some of your pics! how old is your spawn?

there is a significant difference in size for some of my fish. the biggest one compared to the smallest one is like 4x different. should i be worried about the littlest ones?

This is from a book that I have called The Betta Handbook by Robert J Goldstein, Ph.D.

'The best growth doesn't result from heavy or frequent feeding or even the most nutritious foods, although they all help. Optimal growth (fast and even) is attained by frequent, massive water changes that remove the growth- inhibiting nitrogenous wastes of the fishes themselves. '
I hope this helps.

yep. thats why i do daily water changes. fry excrete a growth inhibiting hormone to stump the growth of its siblings. its survival of the fittest.
