  1. Default shovelnose catfish?

    I was at the pet store the other day and they had about an 8 inch shovelnose for sale. My question is does this fish require a heater? I have a blue channel cat and a golden bulkhead in with other native lake species in a 150g but I don't run a heater. I asked the lady there and she told me the tank it was in was 80 degrees so it must reguire warm water.

    they are tropical, if it is NOT a lima nose, the regular ones get massive like 500 gallon massive. The limas can be kept in a 200 to 250 gallon. they are however slow growers, but would not go with your stock already.

    I think the blue channel will grow faster and eat it.

    I looked at him again today and it just says shovelnose and a maximum size of 18"..when my blue channel gets too big I have a buddy with a pond and he will go in there...I've had him about 6 months and he's only grown maybe an inch...so I should have a few years

    I used to own a lima back when i had my monster tank, I am about 90% sure that there isnt any shovelnose under 3 feet, maybe another big cat keeper will chime. IMO I wouldnt get one unless you are prepared with tank first. those big shovels need LOTS of filtration,
