blushing angel fish
 
how big do these fish get and do they ever get mean?

There is no individual species that differs in size when compared to other species. All scalare angels can actually reach more than 5 inches. 6-8 inches often the maximum.

so the different colors and fins are just mutations of a common fish?

Not mutations. Various species are selectively bred to produce actual results depending on the dominant and recessive genes.:) Don't ask me about genes. I had to clarify further but I lack the knowledge to specify which genes are dominant and recessive.:)
