Chinese Algae Eater, 12"?

I read that Gyrinocheilos aymonieri (Chinese Algae Eater) could reach 12 inches. If I add them to a 104 gallon tank with other fish, will they really get that big?

You really don't want one, when they get big they harass your tank mates, don't eat algae, live off the slime coats of your other fish, and have a big bio-load......I had 2 and took them back......took me almost an hour to catch them

You'd be better off with siamese algae eaters, as ricky said.. cae are known to be massive pests..
