yes i suppose. but there are still healthy stocks out there, and WC's being imported to breed, so there are still strong genetic stocks out there that produce mega fish. like how some peoples oscars only grow to 30cm(1ft) while others grow to nearly 50cm. One of my good mates and oscar enthusiasts, went to a guys house and he had a 4ft cubic tank, and my mate swears black and blue that there were two oscars in there that were no less than 50cm(just short of 2ft). Which leads me to believe that in the wild oscars will grow much larger than they do in captivity, like some other fish species.

Yes fish are perpetual growers. When young they grow in length real fast and then that slows down as the fish starts putting on weight.
