I fear you're right.
Very funny to see an aquarium fish being cooked. But that red-tailed catfish is not even an aquarium fish itself other than a food fish considering its potential size makes it impossible even for domestic hobbyists to keep long term.
And anyway, we are not meant to keep red-tailed catfish in captivity. It's best if they are left in their origin rather than exporting or importing them. Who would want a large catfish in their homes when these fish poo a lot considering their potential size?

Tears?
I would gladly shrivel at the sight of a cute catfish.

Mike, I don't have telepathy.

Do you realize what kind of work that would be to keep clean? You'd need to make it a full time job with multiple 80% water changes in a day if the tank is too small and fed in such a manner. Who would want to do all that work for a fish that could die during the night, meaning it would be no good for eating by the time you woke up and found it the next day? Nothing about this would make much sense.
