SearchGUI is Java program that comes with a custom wrapper shell script. This shell wrapper is called “opsin” and is on $PATH by default. By default “-Xms512m -Xmx1g” is set in the wrapper. If you want to overwrite it you can specify these values directly after your binaries. If you have _JAVA_OPTIONS set globally this will take precedence. For example run it with “searchgui -Xms512m -Xmx1g”
