Does anyone know what kinda fish this is on the left? I got this from the LS today. They did not know what it was. Apparently it had been hiding in the tank for awhile. They were not sure what it was doing in their pleco tank. Nobody knew what it was so i got it for cheap. What kinda cat is it? " THE ONE ON THE LEFT"THE LINKE TO MY PIC IS BELOW

It is difficult to verify from your picture. Please provide us more pics which should be even clearer so we can identify it clearly.

I THINK IT MAYBE A Mystus tengara. Did some research, and think that is what it is.

Am i right? Does anyone know what it maybe. I thought i found the right name for the fish, but now i think i am wrong. The pattern of that fish with my fish does not look right. Anyone know what kind i have purchased?

Your picture is hard to tell. Please provide us clearer pics. We cannot compare your search properly.

No, it doesn't look like a Mystus tengara to me. Its body shape closely resembles as that of some synodontis species however.

It looks like a cross between a panda and julii Corydoras. Maybe species 069 but not sure. Too hard to tell without a really good fullprofile shot to see the color patterns and striations. But definately looks like a corydorus of some kind.

it is a batasio affinis
look out for the next issue of PFK as they have done a small article on them in the 'interesting imports' section and I've contributed to the article.

the common name I purchased it as was Burmese mountain catfish but that was probably made up by the shop, they do come from Myanmar (Burma) though.
