My Babies are growing up!!!!

My babies are growing up!! Look at how BIG they are! My first batch of fry... Dalmatian Mollies-- 6 wks, 2 days old
About 30-35 survivors at this point in their own 20 gal long tank.
They seem to grow overnight sometimes!
I'm just so happy and grateful they are doing so well on my first attempt. I'm ever so appreciative of all your comments and suggestions, thank you!

They're looking good. We just had our first batch here too. I think they'll be three weeks old tomorrow.

Cool. I've found that when you put fry in a larger tank they seem to grow over night too! Most of mine are still growing in my 2.5gal then I transfer over the ones that are realy big. The biggest one, a female, is almost 2/3 as big as her mother aster 2 months

Yes, the more room and better conditions you give them the faster they will grow.

Also dont overfeed. Overfeeding is not good for growth, regular feeding on the otherhand is great.

Whats your secret! My mollies seem to be taking forever to grow, though the paradise fry in smaller tank almost double overnight.
