Molly fry not growing

TheNacho

About 2.5 months ago one of my balloon mollies gave birth unexpectedly. I managed to salvage 7 of the fry (now 5, after 2 of them died).

I measured them today, largest is 1.5 cm, smallest is about 1.1 cm. I thought that by that point they'll be larger. Also all of them still look like females, none of them have a pointed analfin. From what I've seen online they should be more developed by now.


Help!!

Are you feeding them good quality foods like life baby Brine shrimp. Good quality foods for Fry is extremely important.

They can get stunted if you don't keep the water clean, have a big enough tank, and feed them enough.
Also it could just be because balloons are bred to be deformed.
