Question turtle not growing

ok i have had my turtles for about 5 months now and they seem happy and everything my only concern is that one of them doesnt seem to have grown since i bought them two have almost doubled in size to about 2 inches long but the third is still very small probably just over an inch long. it isnt being deprived of food as it actually bullies the other 2 when they are getting fed (sort of like an annoying kid sister or brother) im just baffled why the other two are growing so well and this one isnt does anybody have any ideas?

i have a 40 gal tank, i know its getting a bit small now but im moving out of my parents in the next month or so and have to wait to upgrade, i feed them a combination of turtle pellets and bloodworm, also some sweetcorn they wont touch anything else. for calcium i put a piece of cuttlefish in the tank they have a basking lamp and a uvb tube replaced last week, i change the water between once and twice a week and the filter is compatible with up to 80 gal, i am trying to take care of them the best i can but the learning curve is huge
