Length potential is completely determined by genetics. So if you got the right gene pool, then yes it could reach 14 inches. However; based on the fact that you stunted your other red devil, my guess is that this current one will never reach that length.

well said teeser !

I have given him the info on needing a larger tank. I think he was picking one up. A 55 is minimal for a red devil!

I'd also like to add that most cichlids arn't going to get much bigger then the width of the tank. The max length I've ever heard for a Midas cichlid or RD was very close to 18 inches. Assuming the fish is healthy and fed well, a 75 gallon is the perfect size for even a male.
