Catfish and Pleco

I've got 1 common pleco and 2 Raphael catfish in my 36 gallon tank. When I got them I didn't know that they would out grow the tank. Does anyone know how long it takes them to grow?

The Raphael Cats grow to be 8.5" and the pleco will grow to about 12", so yea they will outgrow your tank. I would suggest at least 75g for those fish.

Edit: guess I should read before responding. They will all be full size in a year and should be in a larger tank within 6mo.
