When will my p.bass get there true colour

I have 4 peacock bass they are all doing very well and I have got them from half an inch to around 2, I was just wondering when they start to develop their true colours like the spot by their tail and their gold/yellow colour.

Just researched it a little and it seems they start to colour up at around 5" but depends on water quality and diet a lot, and they should have there true colour at about 16" I hope someone with 1st hand experience can back this up
