Loach growth spurts

Do y'all notice that your loaches tend to grow in spurts? Since I've had mine (about 5 months now) I've noticed that they have little growth spurts, rather than gradual growing. My Botia Modesta was only about 2 inches when I got him... he stayed that way for a while, and now he's HUGE (4"). My Queens have stayed the same size overall.. but my Dojos, Zebras, and Yoyo's all exhibit the same growth qualities. The stay the same for a long time, and then within a couple weeks, I notice a HUGE growth burst. Is this how all loaches grow?
