    Unless you plan on upgrading your 20 to at least a 55gallon, don't get this fish. It can grow up to 10 inches.

    The first picture is of Flowerhorns. NOT a community fish so I would strongly recommend not trying them unless you keep it alone. I agree with the other two IDs.

    Cichlids grow really fast. Some can grow over an inch a month. Around an inch would be the general growth rate for most cichlids I would say. But then again it varies with each fish.
