The yellow lab will got up to 5-6 inches if the tank is big enough and there is room for him to grow (same goes for the blue one in the back). And the convicts will get about 5 inches weather the tank is big enough or not

On a side note I hope you have other tanks because I have a feeling that you didn't get all female convicts so I've they start breeding be prep wired to have some floaters. Most likely the Africans

Your tanks about the size of a bus, if that's true then get something bigger than what you have.
