I think as with most monster fishes, initial growth is fast... after that a slowdown and after a certain size, it kinds of slows till you can barely see the growth.

Adding on in a Tank environment vs natural unlimited volume of moving water...
there's some studies tat show fishes limit their growth when the space is smaller (unless there's constant WC)

Growth rate generally slowdown once the fish hit sub adult. Typically fishes dont get to the max potential size in standard aquarium as compared to the wild.

I find them relatively active even after they've settled in. Do expect some nipping if kept in comm tank.
