    Blues tend to go pretty quickly.. may have to really read up on them.. but that channel should be just fine in there.. what size tank ya got?

    Where do you find a aquarium sized flathead or blue catfish?

    ive had aquariums all my life, both freshwater and saltwater, so i know alot about keeping fish. if your not gonna keep the flathead with the chanel and blue, your gonna need 2 aquariums in the 200+ gallon size. fish will outgrow there enviroment, and your going to have a really good filtration system for both tanks because of the large amounts of waste these fish will produce and all the food you will have to feed them to keep them alive. a 5 gallon tank isnt big enough for the chanel you have now. my advice, before you spend a bunch of money and then your fish die, would be not to do this. your gonna waste your time and money. but if you really want to do it, shoot me a private message and ill help ya all i can.
