I love queens. I lost mine in the holocaust...it will take them a good while to outgrow your tank.

Queens are most definitely the larger of the 2, and will get huge - eventually 10" - 12" long, though I imagine that would take years. We have three Fighting Conchs, and 2 Queens in our 180g. I was shocked at the size of the Queens when we got them - about 3" long. We've had the Fighting Conchs almost a year, and they've yet to reach barely 2". They're both really hard workers - very cool to watch.

Here's one of our Fighting Conchs:

The Queen have relatively the same diet as the Fighting conchs - being primarily algae & detritus eaters. They do require a large DSB, and do a wonderful job at keeping it clean!

More info. on these critters here: Grazing Snails — Part II
