  1. Default How many types of predatory catfish are there?

    I have eaten catfish. I have seen catfish (the kind I eat) kept in aquariums at like restaurants. But I have no idea how many there are. I doubt that one can eat all predatory catfish for one reason or another. But don't they grow relatively long? And how many would you keep in an aquarium?

    I don't know if anyone can answer that question. There are a lot of them thats for sure ;-)

    Your second question is easier to answer. Yes some catfish species can grow relativly long. A European catfish, the wells catfish can grow to be atleast 5 meter / 16.5 long and their are reports that it can grow considerable larger than that. wells catfisg of 7m/ 23 ft has been reported. There are a number of othr large catfish but the wells catfish is the longest of the catfish species.
