I have an albino channel catfish that is about 3-4 inches. I feed him everything from worms, to mealworms, and anything else that i drop in the tank. I wanted to know the growthrate, how long till its gets bigger? Also when will he start eating feeder fish because I drop em in and he never goes after them.

do you have many tanks for all these fish/turtles your posting about and what size are the tanks?

i dont know about growth rate for your channel cat ...however i do know it will depend on the size of the tank, quality of water, and quality of food

They dont grow real fast, I had a channel cat for about six months in my 10g (was keeping it for a friend) without any signs of stunting.

i cant believe that king. while browsing google for an answer i saw that on hatcheries from the time the eggs hatch to 6 month later theyre suppose to have grown to between 4 and 6 inches long, and by a year i was reading to expect them to be 6 to 8 inches long.

It grow to about 4 or 5 inches so i would assume it was fine since there only supposed to grow 4 to 6 inches in 6 months.
