Default Different growth

So i bought 2 yellow teribillis one day snd then about 3 weeks later bought 4 more. The 2 i bought were around 2 to 3 mos old... and the 4 i got were probably 4 to 5 so about double.. they were a bit bigger...

Now 3 mos later the larger ones have grown significantly but the first smaller ones have not so much and havent colored in near as much as the large ones...
Yesterday during feeding i did notice the large one attempt to run off the smaller one during the feeding but ive always fed in two places and i always over feed so theres plenty crawling around after... what would be a good solution? Attached a photo of the large ones maybe you can age them...

I'd seperate them. these look quite young, not 5-6 moths like you say. The one in the photo is 3-4 months old i'd guess.

This is my terribilis mint offspring at 3months old to give you an idea :

Ok, this information changes the story. If you want to play safe, i would let the smaller ones grow to adult size in different tank or plastic box until you make them reunite.

Honestly, I would put a 1/2" - 1" of a banana in the tank so the fruit flys can attach themselves to it so the frogs can find the food easier.

I would also put 2 pieces like this in 2 parts of the tank to ensure that all the frogs get food.

I have 6 BF Terri. and I have been worried about one of them since its a bit smaller than the rest and might of been getting bullied by the other frogs. After I put a slice of the banana in, I woke up this morning and saw him feeding with no problems at all.
