In my experience that size is not uncommon for the males, which is what you have.
yeah I know its a male..his female is about 5 inches...got him in a free 55g with tons of fry and a few sub adults..few other fish and a nice canister filter..just never seen one this big in person

Mine's pretty close to that size. I don't think he's *quite* that big, but he's probably 5.5 inches or so. I'll have to grab a tape measure when I see him on the glass again.
