    Yeah me :) Going to do a Synodontis primer like above, soon. If you have a photo of your catfish I can probably ID him for you. Probably Synodontis nigriventris, but would need a photo to be sure. You can check them out here.
    Great little catfish, especially in groups of five or better.

    thanks! Ive been on there before but could never seem to find him. Now that I can see all the synodontis on one page he looks almost identical to this guy... http://www.planetcatfish.com/catelog...?image_id=1576

    or possibly (but hes not that fat)
    http://www.planetcatfish.com/catelog...p?image_id=341

    Im thinking the first one. Ill try to get a pic of him in the next few days. He likes to hide for a few days then come out and be very active for awhile. I want to get more of them, I keep checking where I got him, I may see if they will order me some.

    What about the asian redtail cat?

    I had an albino one a few years ago (before I was properly caring for my fish). Great fish. I wish I could find another one. Only cost me $7 or something, but I would pay $50 or more if I could find another. KEEP THEM ALONE!

    Fishguy,
    Other than the Iridescent Shark, which was more or less a cautionary entry due to its prohibitive size and schooling nature, I eschewed such fish like those of overwhelming predatory nature in my species list like your ARTC.
    I could have certainly added half a dozen or so such fish as your Asian red tail cat to the list, but seeing as I haven't kept such things for obvious reasons, I decided not to speak of them.
    I only put fish that I've kept in my lists.

    Well they are a great option if the tank space is available. They hit about 2' and I am not aware of anyone keeping them successfully with anything else. If anyone has the tank size, likes the long-whiskered big catfish but can't do tiger shovelnose or South American redtails, these are a great option.
