Just how big _do_ sids get?

I was just looking through the species index and at the top of the page it says 1.4"

Further down the page there are photos of 3-3.5" specimens.

Do they really grow that big or are they another species?

If they do grow that big why isn't the species info at the top of the page updated?

I've seen 3.5-4" specimens at the local LFS but didn't believe they were sidthimunki at the time. Now I'm having second thoughts...

FWIW I had 6 in a 29Gallon for three years and they grew to about 1.5" in that time. Then I had to break down their tank so I returned them to the LFS. That was the worst mistake of my life cos I haven't seen them in the last couple of years.

TIA Dave
