"four bar" pictus cat max size?

Hey guys, I got a new pictus catfish called a "four bar" or something from Petco. How big will this guy get? He's like 3 inches or so now. Thanks!

My Pictus is 6", he's a few years old and fed very well. Everything I've read says 4" for these guys but not mine. I measure him from tip to tail. His barbels are amazingly long. He was one of the first fish I got.
My LFS has both the Pictus and the Four Bar, similar species but very different looking. Knowing Petco they had yours mislabeled. A Pictus has spots, a four bar has just that, four dark bars running down the length of their silver bodies. Which species do you actually have? If you click on the highlighted link for Pictus you should be able to readily identify your cat.

Ah I see. I don't think they actually had it labeled as "pictus cat" just the worker said that. Mine is most certainly a four bar, not a spotted pictus. I don't actually have a good picture yet otherwise I'd post it. Thanks for your reply!
