Mystery Fish
I have had little luck with my earlier post. Here is the deal. I had purchased 2 fisht that I thought were Lace catfish. I was under the an understanding i was purchasing Lace catfish. I think I may have been duped. I think what actually i had purchased were upside down catfish. I am unsure. Heck im even unsure if maybe lace is an upside down breed of catfish. Anyhow they swim sometimes upside down, but they look much different then the upside down catfish I already have. My upside down catfish is black with spots on his tail. His fin looks differnt then the new catfish i had purchased. I have a picture of what they look like on the link below. Can someone please tell me what it is I have, And if i have been duped by pretty looking upside down catfish......

Well the best I can tell you is that I have never seen a catfish look like that that wasn't an upside down catfish.

I will look more to find the specific species but I have had no luck so far.

I knew someone would find it. Good Job Gump! A quick google search will give a lot of pictures.

Really cool looking cat.

Cool. Finally I know what kind of fish it is! How large does it grow? Now it it concidered an upside down? Or what is it?
