Seems with Lacertids they form a pecking order very early on in groups, and the smaller ones can often be intimidated from food (especially when they can't see you) or just for some reason don't seem to grow as fast. Maybe try separating the two smaller ones again into separate cages, and possibly try more of a varied diet? I've found that some are quite individual in they're tastes and therefore may not grow quickly as others on a particular diet (they just don't eat as much of it)

Sorry I culdn't be more of a help (being a Brit and all) but hope the smaller fellas start growing soon.

Rob
