Is my fry growing at a normal rate? Question

  1. fishlover25 Member Member

    I picked up a Ballon molly fry from my lfs sometime in May. By now the fry is at least 3 months old. Is this a good size for it's age? [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Its hard to judge from a picture. To gauge the size, a grain of rice ( average ) is about 5mm long. So based on that, you big would you say?

    What are you feeding your fry? Is it active?

    It's maybe 1 1/2 to 2 grains long. It is active. I feed it Hikari first bites and sometimes crushed omega one flakes

    Every fry grows at a different rate but it sounds like you are feeding with fry food, etc. :)
    As long as you see some growth, I wouldn't be too concerned.

    Thanks. Is two grains long a "normal" growth though?

    Sorry, I thought I answered your question. That's a very tough question because EVERY fry grows at a different rate. Do you notice any growth at all since its been born? Is it eating okay?

    Maybe someone else will have more of a definitive answer. Good luck

    I know it varies but there is a general normal of growth rate, kind of like a human baby should be a certain length to be "normal". I just want to know if I'm on the right track but yes It has grown
