White Spotted Catfish (Agamyxis pectinifrons)

does anyone know anything about this fish? i really like catfish and have been looking into ones that wont get TOO big. as far as i know they will get no more than 6"? i dont think i have room in my tank for one just now:

35g: 1 pictus catfish
1 upside down catfish
1 pitbull plec (i thought he was a common but turns out hes not)
3 swordtails
3 mollies

like i said i dont think theres room but if there is let me know please. if not any information would be appreciated since it could be a possible future fish if i get a bigger tank or move some of these into a different tank

ok, i am going to get one i think, but only after i move all my fish apart from the plec and upside down catfish into another tank. then ill have just the 3 catfish in it. i think that should be pretty cool, and enough space for everyone as i have plenty of bogwood for them to hide if they like

Cool, the spotted talking catfish - they grow to about 14cm (5.5in) A good community catfish but they are very nocturnal. They might eat very small fish or fry on night time forages. Will eat anything within it's reach.

Thanks for the help. He/she will be going into a tank with a common plec and 2 synodontis so I don't think there's any worry of small fish getting eaten. Still haven't got him yet but I have the tank cycling so that the occupants of the tank he'll be going into can be moved out so it's soon :D
