Lot of it depends on how often you feed,they grow pretty fast like going from a 3'' to 7'' in about 5 months. Mine have split once they reach the 7 to 8'' size. Started with three 5 months ago now i have 6.

A BTA can split on arrival from stress alone, or can be induced by over feeding.
I've had my sebae over 5yrs now, no split, and not sure if they even do split.
Growth depends on food/light/water params.
Mines about 22"
