Im not sure if it is a Catfish but i remember having one of the little guys in England when i first started into the hobby, i housed him with a Shovel-nose tiger and an upside down siamese in a 35 gallon, when i first got her the salesman at the pet store told me she was a great addition to any aquarium, was super gentle would get along with everything until one day i found my pink kissing gourami hanging out of his mouth and my tetras going missing 1 by 1 every day so i got into catfish and these were the last fish i had in the uk before i moved to canada
anyways im reminiscing,
are these fish up for sale in canada as i cannot see anywhere with google if they are a banned species or not
Thanks in advance

Calrius cats are easily available in Canada. My LFS frequently carries them. Commonly called 'walking catfish'.... I'm in southern ont. I especially love the albinos.Thar she blows!!!

They should be available in your region, but it's not the most common fish and since they get quite large (18-24") it's usually only the bigger/more specialized stores that carry them.
I'm sure that cocoa will be along soon to tell you where to find one ...My AC Fish Gallery:

Good luck with getting a hold of one once everything's set-up!
The babies aren't too common here on the East Coast, but we've got a pet-store with a large display tank of adults. Pretty neat Cats to watch.A severe lack of trichogaster.
Just because your Gourami is sick does not mean it is always Iridovirus, DGIV, Gourami Disease, et cetera.
Look at all the other factors in your tank before coming to this conclusion.
