I lost track of this thread. Porks usually grow to ~8inches in captivity since tanks are way too small for these fish. Many larger porks are caught in the wild and brought into captivity. If your pork grow larger than 8-9inches, then you're doing a good job raising/feeding him.

Good update. The young porks are usually less aggressive than the full grown ones. For more info, here is a good article on porks:
