How fast do clowns grow again?

Had to break down and get a 40 gal today (it was 50 bucks).
Last night, during the midnight snacking I noticed considerable growth in the citizens of the 18 gal

The knife is now nearly 8 inches, one clown almost caught up to him. they were nearly same lentgh side by side until you factor in the little stick tail on the knife. The other 2 are nearly 6in a piece and half the rummy noses are now at the adult 2 inches. Only the penguins and phantoms are growing at expected rates.
My water is testing fine, but space alone! I have to move them...
I guess they didn't read the memo that they can't grow much until June.... (maybe I should go back to flake! >:( )
