Stunted Growth
If Platy fry are kept in a small tank (2 gal) will they grow? Will it take longer for them to grow? Will they mature properly? Will they be like dwarf platies once they are full grown? Sorry for all the little questions, I'm new to breeding 8)

It depends, how many fry? What is your filtration? What will the water quality be like? As with all fish, if you overpopulate and under filter the tank you will have problems. You likely won't end up with "dwarf" platies, but deformed ones. Bent spines, ill from poor water quality, etc.
