I do not have experience with this exact type BUT most "normal size" (so not the small plecos) plecos grow pretty rapidly until they reach 4-6" then they do slow down quite a bit. So I can't give an exact guess as to when he will reach full size.

My best guess would be 1-2 years in good conditions.

Can you consider looking into a larger tank? A 75 gallon is a really similar size in terms of space as a 55g.
