How many brine shrimp are you feeding in terms of quantity?  Teaspoon-ish?

Well this morning I think I gave the about a tablespoon lol. Will be doing a water change this afternoon. I was having a problem hatching them. So I did a big batch. Oops it worked once I got a lamp and not a led light lol

Oh wow they look more like three week olds.  Definitely up the temperature a bit (78-ish?) and do the brine shrimp 3 times a day, half a teaspoon each feed and up it if they gobble it all fairly quickly.  They should put on weight with the protein :)

I have trouble getting my fry to grow as well, fish that i bred and hatched myself are still only a couple of inches long at 2 years old oops. I thought i was feeding enough (the batch before all died and I thought i was feeding TOO much, but after reading this I don't think there was anyway I could have been feeding them too much) If I get fry again I might try bigger meals than what I was doing and more frequent and see if I can get better growth too!

I seem to suck at getting fish to grow in general though lol

Well I'm back from camping. The fish sure have grown. @Arctic Mama you where right, they needed more food and most of all live food. I will get photos to you guys soon.

I’m so glad to hear it!  That’s great that they just needed some better food quality,  I swear I can see the difference day to day here, too.  Show off those fry in a week and let’s see how much growing they’ve done 👍
