Catfish and Sucker, Names??
 
3 Attachment(s)
I bought two Catfish and Sucker Fish a few weeks ago and I cannot for the life of me remember the names of them! Woops! If anybody knows could you let me know. They are still young so if anyone has pictures of them as adults that would be great to see to. Thanks!

the cat looks like a synodontis ocellifer. They get quite large.
the pl*co looks like a peckoltia, but i dont know which one.

Thanks for that you were right on the name they grow about 15-20cm. I went to the fish shop today and checked. The suckers are Bristlenose Cats and grow about 12cm.

If anyone has photo's of them at adult size that would be great!!!
