    Is it normal for guppy fry to be around 1.5cm after around 1.5months?

    Given ample food and space it’s possible. Fry grown together with the adults for some reasons tend to grow faster, maybe to avoid being eaten

    i can spot my guppy fries... very tiny at only about 5mm long

    luckily they tend to stay at the bottom of the tank where there are plants to hide

    the adult guppies tend to swim at the top of the tank

    I only keep 1.5month old fry with the adults as the black moscow females are huge and attack the newborn fry
