    Interesting catfish. Would be kind of cool in a species only tank...might also be a little boaring though.

    Edit: The fish pictured in the first post appears to have no adipose fin. Is this a true catfish or another species with a poor (misleading) common name?

    cool looking fish, but i agree with what most people are saying, I would not dedicate a tank to it. It might work with large cichlids in a really big tank, but i wouldn't chance it from your description of it tearing holes in larger fish. Seems to me to be one of those Oops fish, that stores shouldn't carry and wind up selling to people that have no clue. Unfortunately there are a large variety of fish like that, and the only way i can think of to help curb that trend is to not buy them. E.G. those little pacus and little plecos you see at every dang chain store, people put them in a 20 gal then they grow to over a foot long. Oops it outgrew my tank!

    take a look at this.

    It would eat the cichlids.

    They are vicious.

    This would be my fear, dang thing eats or kills every other fish in the tank, no matter how tough they may be. I always think catfish, not a predatory fish at all, scavenger, in the back of my head. That's such a misconception on my part it is unbelievable its still in my thought pattern. I've kept shovelnose cats before and they are very predatory fish. I guess i just automatically have a picture of a nice little peaceful cory when i think catfish.

    Course one look at that thing and i knew it wasn't so, just google image search em for 5 minutes, read a few of the articles it'll come up with and you'll know they aren't suitable for most home aquariums.

    I didn't mean to suggest they should be kept with cichlids, just that it might be possible. Now i don't even think that's the case.

    If this is the fish I'm thinking of, it was on an Animal Planet show, and they are savage little monsters. More or less the piranha on crack version of the catfish. There's a story that some men were drunk, fell into the Amazon and were fished out and believed to have died of bullet wounds. Turns out the bullet wounds were the circular bite marks these fish use to bury themselves into the prey and eat them alive from the inside out. The men were completely hollow.

    But I could be wrong. ^^
