Do fish really keep growing?

I was wondering if fish continue to grow or do they only grow as big as there environment?I've been raing fish for at the very least 13 years. I have never seen a fish grow as big as I hear people say they will. My current setups have fish 5 years old that I have had them and they only seem to grow as I add Them to Larger aquariums. And I have been Adding them to larger aquariums because I have been able to afford htem. Most of these fish lived 3-4 years in a 35 gallon tank. and I bought a 55 gallon a couple months ago and am seeing more growth again. Just some thoughts. and would like some input.

Wow, that scared me at first. But, at least he's upgrading for them. Not a bad tank for that price.

That poor fish. Cramped and in that filthy water. The owner needs slapped around.

Read the description folks. He is upgrading. The water is brown because he scooped out the sand and the picture was taken in the middle of tearing it down.

My apologies. I did not read the whole auction post. I am glad he is doing the right thing. I wish I lived in his area.
