It was only $25?? It usually sells for around $50-60. But then again, its not 6" yet. Yeah, I guess you can keep it for a while then sell it when it gets too big for your tank. Just hope someone will buy it.
Rtc are pretty easy to take care of and need the usual for a carnivorous fish:
Pwc at least 1 time a week
Carnivorous pellets/live foods
Water checks
Etc....

Thank you for not criticizing me on what I did and i had noooo idea they were that expensive so I could feed it feeders (which I've never had a problem with before so don't flip) I have another cat in the tank also which I'll take a pic of and post I forgot the name so I need an ID

Ok. Definitely post a pic because we don't want ya to wake up one morning missing a cat.
Feeders should really be treats and be fed around 1-2 times a week. The pellets have a more balanced diet and will ensure more healthy fish.
Is the other cat the only other inhabitant or are there other fish? How many inches is the rtc now?
Adult rtc can sell for a lot of $. Just juvies are really expensive so you can imagine how much an adult would be.

It's definitely cute. Hmmm. Maybe a pictus? Not sure. I'm not too good at IDing cats. But I do know it prob isn't an armored cat. Is it bigger/same size as the rtc?

The beta might be in trouble when the rtc gets bigger or even now. The newt maybe too but if its a good hider, you might not be able to tell if its dead or just hiding . Not sure about the cat. But the peacock eel should be ok.

Hopefully it doesn't becomes dinner. If the cat survives long enough in the tank with the rtc, the rtc will eventually get used to the cat ( same goes for other fish ) and not try to eat it.

I remember one time when I was really young I got a Common Pleco for a 10 gallon tank and it became a monster! I had no option but to put it into my small pond. Which was probably the worst thing I've ever done to a fish. We all make mistakes! Hopefully you will sell that catfish when or if it gets bigger than 6 inches. Just make sure to do some research before you buy fish. Just some constructive criticism.

Just previous experience with catfish. If at any point they are hungry and something can fit in its mouth, it will eat it. Period.

+1. That's for most cats. But usually there are exceptions like the Cory's but an rtc is not.
