What kind of catfish??

http://i1177.photobucket.com/albums/...1322510484.jpg

He/she is 8 months old and 10 inches long! Looks like a channel but I got him in the same tank as pictus catfish at a local store when he was only a couple inches.

You only have a 55 gallon tank....you may need a bigger tank? If that is an albino channel cat, they can get to 3-4 ft long and close to 35 lbs! I just Googled it, it also said "becareful they grow fast"!
