I had apistos in my 29g before it crashed (for the billionth time :P ) and I can say from experience the colors from fish to fish can vary radically. the colors can change some from juvie to full grown, but its entirely possible he was bred to be a triple red and just... has some yeller in him :)
i never had any that I kept from fry, but mine seemed to grow relatively slow. Id guess about a year from 1.25 to full grown is what I would call average in my experiences, maybe a little less.
oh and i almost forgot, I had a pair (that i think we determined to be resticulosa) that didnt breed till just about full grown. after breeding my male promptly harassed my female to death. actually, it was JUST after i shipped all the fry to herefishy :P grumble grumble.
