    are you feeding them? I have 140 fry about same age and have been giving them growth pellets. The pellets soften in the water and the fry are nibbling on them.

    They'll grow. It takes a while. Last year we didn't even notice we had fry in our pond until almost 2 months after the fish spawned!

    Some of mine are 1/4" and some are already 1 1/2". All from same hatch!

    Baby brine shrimp are a great fry food if you're willing to set up a hatchery. It's actually easy to do--just kinda messy after a couple weeks...
