I have a 3500 gallon pond with 1 very large albino catfish and 2 medium size Koi, which all were raised in the pond together. I have 2 new 4" Koi in quarantine which I want to add to my pond but was concerned if the catfish will eat them ... any thoughts

How big is the catfish?
My catfish "casper" is approximately 20 inches long.

I have channel catfish that is about 2’ long and it is in my pond with all kinds of little fish it could suck down no problem. It ignores all of them, have to admit I was hoping it would help with population control but nope.

Bottom line It probably could eat them, but if it is well fed it will probably leave them alone.
