They are in a 6.6 bookcase tank. I think I have around 30, but it's hard to say for sure.

I've heard that more water changes = faster growth. All I can say is every other day works for me.

I know what you mean. But I've also heard other breeders say that some of their best bettas have been the "slow bloomers", so I don't give up on them just because they take their time growing up.

good luck with your slow ones! I don't breed but I heard feeding a mixture of different food types at different sizes helps the big ones to get their food and the little ones to get theirs. =]

Mine are being fed microworms, brineshrimp decaps, and betta starter. They love the decaps the most, but I believe a mixture is best to make sure they are getting the nutrients they need.

My spawn is 4 weeks old now. Some of the larger ones are getting the betta shape, and ventral fins. I tried taking pics of them, but they turned out too blurry. My battery is low on my camera, so I'll have to change them as soon as I have the money to buy more.
