It is highly variable across culturing facilities, and even in the
literature.  In our facility, they grow at an average rate of ~0.03cm/day
over the first 100 days post hatch, starting at (day 5/6) total lengths of
~0.35 cm, attaining average lengths of ~ 3.0 cm.  

The rates very much depend on culturing conditions, particularly feeding,
densities, etc.
