I had clarias catfish and they can grow quite rapidly, from an inch to 18 inches in a year. But keep a close fitted hood on the tank, they don't call them the walking catfish for nothing.

he was actually bought as a black oscar when he was about an inch and a half, he was jet black with silver markings but as hes grown the colours are coming through. He did used to live with a tiger oscar but one night the tiger ripped him apart and was left with hardly any scales and a big open wound in his side.
