Does anyone know what type of catfish this is, I got him about six months ago and he is really growing fast I just dont know what type of cat he is.

looks like an albino channel catfish maybe?

Channel cats get to be like 20-30 pounds lol. What size is your tank? Sounds interesting.

I have him in a 55 right now, but am looking to get a 120 here in the near future

If I'm right and this is a channel cat, a 120g isn't going to cut it. This is one of those true monster fish that the average aquariast simply does not have the means to provide a proper home for.

I'd want someone else to confirm or deny my ID, though.

95% sure it is a channel, my lfs sells them, it is a pond fish or at least a 500-600 gallon tank, and that is just to house it, thats not even big enough for him to live luxourious. lord the filer on that tank lol, 4x fx5s lol the are messy, if ya have a pond or raise it on the 125 till it is plate size, lmao

Yeah he is messy and growing fast, he has at least grown 3-4" in six months, he gets mad at me and swims so fast he almost shakes the tank. I got him for free and he is gorgeous, i just have the feeling he will have to go.

I already got rid of my blue cat and he was bigger than the albino.
