Just about like any other fish from what I've seen, good diet and they'll grow like a weed in the first year, then it slows down.

Mine is probably around 8-9" if I had to guess, so he's probably 9 months old, or so.

I think I read somewhere about counting the spines along their backs, but like with most fish, I'm pretty sure that's speculation.
