Well, being 2 months and the size of your fingernail sounds pretty good to me. That is without their tail, right?

Depending on the breed really, and their food and frequency of feeding, as well as water changes, its different on how fast they'll grow. Comet fry tend to grow faster than for example a bubble eye fry would.

Also, how do their parents look - ranchu shape, or more longer body like a lionhead? The genes are also a factor.

Of course, almost every fry will fill out nicely and get a fat belly when fed more frequent smaller foods. Live or frozen foods are excellent at that young age - they need plenty of protein to grow.
