I'm coming from the reptile world so forgive my ignorance but do juvenile Mbuna need higher temps than adults?

No. Same tank conditions, just cleaner water and cover the filter so they don't get sucked up. Also feed 4X daily.

Well really that is for fry...like grain of rice size.

Juveniles under 2"?

If they are over 2" treat the as adults...many will spawn at that size.

They are very small to be sold...are you including the tail when you measure?
