 I  have  few  guppy  fries(17  days  old   now  Cheering  )
 
 I  am  wondering  if  they  are  growing  well  enough.  Is  there  any  way  to  find  out  if  they  are  doing  ok?
 
 What  should  be  average  size  of  Guppy  fry  of  15  days  /  1  month?  any  comments  based  on  your  past  experience?
 
 I  can  certainly  see  some  fries  are  getting  bigger  than  the  other  ones,  so  they  are  definately  growing,  all  I  want  to  make  sure  that  they  are  growing  with  propper  rate.  They  belongs  to  very  precious  strain   Rock On  &  I  dont  even  want  to  loose  a  single  one....
 
 I  have  been  feeding  them  about  4-6  times  a  day,  water  parameters  are  excellent,  filter  and  stuff  is  installed  too.

 Sandy,
 No  matter  how  pure  a  strain  you  have,  normally  you  will  never  get  that  traits  in  all  your  fry.
 Only  a  few  will  have  the  strain  you  desire..  remaining  will  show  traits  which  will  reflect  other  traits  which  can  go  up  3-4  generations.  some  times  even  the  wild  guppy  strains  will  also  emerge..
 so  you  need  to  select  the  fish  which  you  think  is  the  best..  and  the  remaining  needs  to  be  separated  from  them  or  culled.
 This  is  one  of  the  reason  that  your  guppies  are  growing  at  different  rates..  you  will  also  see  supple  variations  of  finnage  and  coloring  in  them..

 Yes,  I  thought  that  too....However,  in  general  how  do  you  judge  whether  they  are  growing  correctly?
 
 For  example  the  fries  I  have  right  now,  some  are  close  to  half  inch  in  size,  some  are  more  than  quarter  inch  so  in  general  I  am  not  sure  on  their  growth.  can  you  provide  some  light  on  this?
 
 I  agree  on  your  views  on  strain...

 Growth  depends  on  many  things,
 main  being  genetics,  food,  stress  and  so  on..
 They  are  not  clones  to  grow  at  the  same  rate,  that's  what  I  meant  when  telling  about  strains..  
 some  might  have  slow  growth  genetics,  and  some  might  have  genetics  to  be  small  in  the  first  place..
 don't  worry  about  the  growth,  nothing  can  alter  it  if  they  are  programmed  to  be  so..

 My  2  cents:
 
 Growth  rate  is  proportional  to  the  width  of  the  container.  I  notice  fast  growth  if  they  are  shifted  to  a  wide  base  tank  or  tub  with  clean  water  parameters.  
 
 Growth  remains  very  slow  if  they  are  kept  in  small  bowls  or  containers.  They  are  not  feed  sensitive,  majority  will  survive  if  they  get  as  simple  as  pellet  powders  twice  a  day.
 
 Cheers!

 guppy  fry  should  reach  show  size  in  about  2.5  months
 seperate  the  male  and  the  females  as   soon  as  you  can  identify  them,  mostly  around  the  25day  mark,
 feed  them  heavily  with  BBS  or  other  live  foods  such  as  daphnia,  with  40%  w/c  daily.
 hope  this  helps
 P.S-  which  strain  is  this?

 its  tough  to  judge  guppies  untill  they  are  atleast  50%  of  their  adult  size,which  takes  around  4months  if  u  breed  em  in  aquariums  with  minimal  water  changes

 Hi  vidhyasagar99,
 
 No  it  takes  only  1.5  months  to  judge  the  male  and  female  guppies  in  the  ordinary  conditions  also.  I  seperate  my  guppies  in  the  age  of  1  month.  Guppy  females  get  matured  at  the  age  of  2.5  months  and  male  get  matured  very  quickly  before  female  do.

 ksandy,  growth  rate  of  guppy  fries  tends  to  differ  from  fry  to  fry.   No  matter  how  good  the  parents  were  in  terms  of  beauty  and  size,  the  fries  can  never  grow  uniformly.   Some  tend  to  grow  faster  than  others  while  one  or  two  may  not  show  any  growth  at  all.
 
 Generally,  as  gandhi,  mudassir  and  nidhi  have  put  up  in  their  posts,  that  is  normal  growth  rate.  Umesh  has  put  up  a  very  good  point.
 
 You  may  if  you  wish,  see  my  juveniles  when  they're  2-month  old  as  per  link  below.  You  can  see  tgat  some  are  bigger  while  some  are  not.   Even  their  tail  size  differ.  My  red  grass  tends  to  have  better  tails  than  the  blue.

 PS:
 The  juveniles  are  from  2  females  of  japanese  blue  guppies.  When  you  breed  blue  grass,  you  will  also  get  red  grass  fries.  Both  females  dropped  their  fries  on  the  same  day.
