Growth rate of Clowns

Never having kept clown loaches before, I'm wondering what kind of growth rate to expect. I've got a very large community tank,about 240 gallons, stocked with tiger barbs, rosy barbs, bala sharks, a few flying foxes, and a red-tail shark. The total number of fish is well under 50 though, and it's not so crowded that there's a tremendous competition for food or little room to swim. The tank's large and not over-populated, with plenty of driftwood, plants, and rocks to hide under, with a nice deep sand bed to dig in, and to boot it's got a water-change system that's as automatic as a water sprinkler system ( which is what it was made from;))
So anyway, I've got a group of 7 clown,s all are between an inch and a half and 3 inches, and I'm wondering how fast they'll grow and how big they'll get. Anyone care to make any predictions? I'm feeding Tera-Min flake, frozen brine shrimp and zuchinni a couple times a week.
