Catfish can only afford to be lazy when living in a river enviroment because they can set up shop in a rivers eddy which inherently bring food to them. Fish that live in lakes are much more active. This is partly the reason that many large cats are caught in Texas lakes. There are many contributing factors required for a body of water to sustain trophy or world record fish, some of those include genetic strain of fish, water temperature, forage base, commericial harvest, fishing pressure, size of water.

I think the catfish was on the clear and cream
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

If I'm not mistaken, catfish are bottom feeders, so probably zero...except maybe carcases of dead fish on the river bottom.

I have a Redtail Catfish in my tank at home. He eats everything even rocks. In fact he ate a Jewel Cichlid that was in there. I feed him comets too but his tankmate a Lukanani (Peacock Bass) usually eats most of them. I need a bigger tank real soon.
