About 4 inches. Catfish was bigger - 5inches.

I had to work a double shift so my wife fed them with pellets but didnt put lights on.

When i put lights on when i got home - i thought they looked bigger. Then i noticed the remains of the catfish.

(I know it sounds weird but they do look bigger now theyve eaten him. Both in length & body mass. They were probably about 3inches 24hours ago!)

I have two juvenile oscars in my tank (look at my other posts theres pictures).
Im not sure who or if both ate him.

My tiger oscar was smaller than my albino but now they are same size.
Even though the tiger was smaller he/she has always been the boss of the tank. So my money is on the tiger due to these factors.

A fish can't grow length overnight, only sideways "growth" before digestion. :whistle:
