So I finally found time (if you havent known I have been having issues with all of my other fish) and I got pictures XD I could only get these two cause of how opaque the container is and how yellow everything is in it due to all the tannins

I also found these weird little shrimp things in my tank they kinda run around and rummage through the grunge on the bottom and eat the micro worms in there they might be why I havent seen dead fry yet

Anyone have any good tips on how to get uniform fry growth I do water changes 20% every three days (the most I can do) and feed three times a day. But one fry I have "Goliath" is three times bigger then his siblings. I wish I could get a picture he hides in the java moss almost all day even during feeding. He is almost over 1cm and his siblings are still about 1/2 a cm (give and take a few of course). Should I do more frequent small changes or more larger ones? what do you guys do?

OFL suggested i either take the largest out so it wont secret its growth stunting hormone on them and they can catch up. I ended up taking out the ones i thought he could eat and doing 2 60% changes a day on them for 5 days with extra feeding and they caught up pretty fast, but if hes the only one whos that large id remove him. I think 10-20% daily and 50% once a week is the best schedual, that 50% really helps, so if you could find a way to remove him and do a big change for the rest, they should catch up pretty fast.

do you think floating him alone in a smaller container in the tank (if I can find him ) will be alright ?
