    Default help IDing a catfish

    0 Not allowed!
    i bought a catfish from the petstore under the name pseudo leopard catfish, which seems right because the pattern is leopardish. but upon searching the internet i have come up blank many times in getting any information about this fish. the only thing i know is that the guy at the pet store said it can get about three foot long. but because the only reference I can find is the name pseudo leopard catfish itself it leads me to believe that they also go by another more popular name.

    the behavior is very nonturnal, it will stay in the pipe it is in in the pictures anytime the aquarium is lit. give it about thirty seconds after the lights have been turned off, it will go out and hunt feeders. it also will eat a shrimp pellets, it is not limited to only feeders. after feeding it will usually go back to its pipe for a while to digest, and then swim around until daylight comes back around

    sorry the pics suck, they were taken with my cell phone cam. it's the only camera i have

    any help would be appreciated

    Could it be a marble catfish. I think they are the same species. Perrunichthys perruno

    Hi all, first post here, sorry for the informal introduction. Judgeing by the wiskers, looks to be: Learius Marmoratus
