I was told that they will grow to 12 inches in the first year and then slow down but should be 18 inchs by 2-2 1/2 years. Mines 14 inches right now and I bought it from Kolewolf in July last year and I think it was 3 inches

hes only in a 90 gallon rite now i plan on buying him a bigger tank this summer im think of going to a 220 gal. it sounds like yours maybe stunted, has it grown at all sense you have had it?

on a side note i have a ceylon puffer that is stunted. i have had it for 2 years now and it hasnt grown an inch in my 120gal,it was 3inches when i bought it and its 3 inches now. i had bought a gsp around the sames time and put in the same take it was an inch when i bought it and now its 5inches
