That growth chart does give you an idea how big fry should be. However, don't be discouraged if your fry is growing slower. Fry growth depends on a number of factors; food, water, genetics, and mentality. Often, we can't duplicate the exact conditions to power grow fry evenly.

In fact, sometimes I am confused by growth rate of fry accidentally siphoned into "waste" buckets. Poor water, smaller container, and not fed, but can grow faster than those I pamper.

Very true!

Aw...they accidentally get siphoned? :cry:

I'm guesstimating that my boy is 4-6 months old. His fins are not short, but I don't think they are fully developed either. However, his body is still rather small...about 1.5 inches.
