If that Silver tipped catfish has stopped growing, it's because his growth has been stunted. Given the appropriate sized (huge) tank, with frequent water changes and brackish to full salt water in adulthood, he would have got to twice that size.
In that small tank he doesn't have the room to engage in his natural foraging behaviours. Eating from your hand doesn't indicate that he's happy. He lives to eat- that's why he has such a huge mouth.

Ok well I guess that's your opinion but I've had him for 5 years and he is great happy swims a lot and yes he does have salt.

It's not my personal opinion. Nor is it my personal opinion that he should live another 10 years.
My personal opinion is that any fish that grows above 1ft long at adulthood doesn't belong in home aquaria and should require a licence to keep.
