    Hey guys, I've seen pictures of 2 month old fry that are easily ng enough to put in the main tank. My fry are 2 months old and I can't hardly tell te difference between now and the day they were born. I feed them 3 times a day. What's wrong? Is this normal?

    What are you feeding them? Fry grow best with a high protein, high quality diet, and clean, heated water.

    Try feeding them egg yolk can help frozen brine shrimp can help and live-bearer pellets can help too my fry are growing like weeds on that mix

    I feed them a mixture of small bites, regular frozen flake food, and crushed brine shrimp. The water parameters are perfect and they are in a breeder net in my 20 gallon community tank.

    I think the reason they aren't growing is because they are in a breeder net. The need space to grow. I'd suggest trying to get your hands on a 10g or larger to grow them out in.
