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

    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.

    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.
