how quickly should angel fish grow?

I bought some babies not so long ago but they are still tiny, I have them in a community tank with three larger angels and some other fish. Temperature is 25C and I feed granules, flakes and sometimes beefheart but not a lot and not often as there are plecos in the tank.

Hello Maria, i take it you have got domestics and not wilds?
Domestics i wouldn't be overly worried about at all, they seem to grow well whatever the conditions (as long as there not extreme)
My Altums i treat identical to Discus, good clean warm water and plenty of feeds (up to 8 small feeds in a day) and plenty of wt's.
Mine are still not growing at lightning speeds but they are growing steadily and i am happy with the results so far.
