Goldfish never stop growing, but they slow down a lot after 2 or 3 years.

I got my fantail 6 years ago at 1'', and he got to 5'' in 2 years. Now he's approaching 7''.

River stones won't fit in your fish's mouth even when fully grown, but if you're planning to use them like gravel, it would be a hassle to clean. Besides, fish like to sift through the gravel for food, so I suggest you get gravel that would be too small to get stuck in their mouth. Fine grain gravel, like very coarse sand, would be the best.
