Fry are now one month old . They are still so tiny! I do water changes now every other day on the 20 gal i take about 50 % of the water out. Some fry are tiny but some are huge there showing a bit of blue on them now. I still feed brine shrimp about 3 times a week but i mainly feed powered flake food the bigger ones munch away at it but the smaller one just give it a nibble lol i have some pics on my phone but they wont upload so patience.

Same here, a majority of mine should be flaring within a few weeks where as the rest are just the size of a 2 week old.

I do daily 15 gallon water changes on a 16.5 gallon tub...IDK whats with the little ones. Oh well they're moving to a 30 gallon tub next weekend (or sooner) so that'll help with growth.

That's probably what I'm gonna do, I have 5 growouts and another one I'll be getting tomorrow. The small ones will be in their current tub and the big ones will go into the 30 gallon tub.

Mine wont adjust to powdered at ALL. I'll try crushing some frozen bloodworms tonight and adding them to their tub.
