    From what I know, they grow pretty slow. It'll be longer than a year. Maybe 2-3 years

    Took 2 of mine about 1-2 years to reach 14+ from 2-3". If throwing them in your pond, be sure to cover the pond. That thing will jump as soon as it hits water. Also beaware that they do suck major slime off other fish.
