They never really do stop growing. Sure.....this may sound odd, but in my experience they grow for as long as they live. They grow the fastest from their birth until sexual maturity. They do still grow in dimension after that, albeit...slower. Most will add bulk, girth and thickness, almost all will still add height and diameter well into their 4th year of life. As they age they slow their growth down considerably, after 4 years it is very slow but still continues as photos I have taken of certain fish as they progress in life does show them filling in and adding mass.

Oh boy....As of late this site has gotten very hostile. I'm not really so sure it is in my best interest to continue trying to help people who are going to be so quick to become angry. It's not worth the aggravation.
