New mbuna fry! How long till selling size.

Eggs just got out of the tumbler and are now free swimming. Looking healthy and eating good. There's about 20 of them and I was wandering how long it will take for them to get to a good selling size.

Depends on what you're feeding them. Live bbs and you should be ready to go in 4-6 weeks easily. I do that and after 2-3 wks add crushed high protien flake food.

Start with NLS fry formula untill they're large enough to wean them up to grow and once there an inch to inch and a half you should be golden.
