Oh, I'm stuck too; and this is the reason for posting. Bear in mind, as an art project back in the early '70's I tattooed my name on my arm so I wouldn't forget what it was. (Sort of positive ID)
Anywho, I was told the bottom feeder, #3, was a Pacasumus (sp?) and number 2 was an elephant nosed Fresh Water Dolphin (dolphin look alike). People give me these fish, what can I say?
Number 2 (Dolphin) is actually much prettier than the common elephant nose as it doesn't have that large upper dorsal which resembles an Angel Fish because it also has a dorsal almost as large. Where this elephant nose is more smooth with the dorsal long and short, and the pectoral smooth and almost non-existent.
The catfish is interesting, it's three years old (it has a friend the same age in that tank) and about 14 inches (35cm) long. They prefer to hide and are very timid, but, as you can see from the cloudy water, I've cleared a bunch of stuff away so I could photograph him/her/it.
