Cuttle growth rate?

Hi guys.

Just a quick question about growth rates.

All my cuttles hatched towards the end of january. I was kind of expecting them to be larger by now. The larges is over an inch but the smaller ones are probably about an inch.

It seems to my eyes they havent grown much recently. The largest one is on frozen krill superba but the smaller ones are still only taking frozen mysis. Fed twice per day, 2 each per serving.

Is this normal?

:bugout:

My supplier has been messing me about for a while. I've been waiting on a supply of large gammarus for 3 weeks. I beleive these are at least 40% protein.

Am i harming my cuttles at present? i have nightmares of them not growing and with them only having a short life span i want to enjoy them being in the main tank for as long as possible.
