Does anyone know what the growth rate in a year is for juvenile A. cristyi? What size do males typically start to colour up?

Thanks!

I am pretty sure it depends. In my experience it has taken my big 8 inch bumblebee years to reach full size. On the contrary, I have had other cichlids grow relatively fast. It depends on the environment they are in and space in the tank really. In perfect conditions a cichlid could grow an inch a month, but note that this situation is very very rare.

Right. It seems like my Malawi hawks are growing fairly quickly. I have had them for a month or so and have already noticed significant growth.
