OK, so my fry hatched on April 28th and will be 3 weeks old tomorrow but they are so freaking small! I swear they look like they're only one week old. Why? Please help me.

What kind of fry? What are you feeding them?

Betta fry at 3 weeks aren't that big. Make sure you are doing water changes at least even other day.

Here's some links for you.



Also how large was your spawn? Frequent water changes are important but if there is a whole lot of fry dividing the spawn between two containers can sometimes help.

Well I feed them microworms twice a day. I'd say there are atleast 200 in the spawn. What's the best way to change the water?

Use some airline tubing and drain into a small ice-cream pail or container to check to make sure you rescue any fry that decided to "take a ride" not sure if you're are large enough to minimize this risk or not.
Here's a pretty good link on s with Betta Fry

You will suck up so fry. It's impossible not to. I put a fine mesh over the end of the airline tubing to help.
