damsel question?

OK I have 4 different species of damsels
1 of each

My question is this

when I bought them at same time 2 months ago they all were the same size,
now they all doubled in size except my yellow tail why is he not growing too??
he looks so tiny now compared to the others
they all eat well are healthy and fat

1 blue/yellow tail
1 yellow
1 3 stripe
1 domino

even my chromis got bigger

They'll create a pecking order and my guess is the yellow tail is at the bottom lol

It might just seem that way cause he's getting picked on so much he "lashes" out at the slightest provocation to avoid getting beat up anymore. Peacocking a bit you could say. Not sure about this though just my guess lol

I know this cause I spend hours just sitting enjoying the tanks

That's funny, I have a nano w 2 damsels in it, a blue & a Fiji Devil. The devil is supposed to be the aggressive one, but the blue will swim across the tank just to mess with it.
