My guy is a little more than two years and is 13.5 inches total length, so I would say they can get a bit bigger than 13 but no where near 23.5 that was mentioned

In the Flowerhorn community there is no such guarantee to attaining something that is very long in size. Yet there are truly some specimens in nature that can attain this size, one very good example is the Umbie, which can grow to approximately 24 inches in length. But there have been no recorded FHs that have reached that potential yet. Not to fret that there are some that have reached the 18 inch mark that some members have posted on FHUSA. And then there are those known as Bonsai FHs that are just short bodied specimens that can be anywhere from 4 inches in length to a maximum of 10 inches in length. I hope this helps you see that ultimately it is what's bred into the Flowerhorn that makes it big.
