Few months back I asked you what type of catfish this is. Well it has hidden for that long that I gave up on him. Well over the past few days he has been out swimming. What type is he? I have a coldwater tank so he is a coldwater catfish.
Thats no channel catfish! Oh my god i had one of these guys for ages! Heres a link:Catfish
I think its one of these! I hope so anyway! If so you might want to think about his smaller tank mates...... they probably will be eaten! My fish lived for 3 years with the same sword tails and guppies... i woke up one morning and hed eaten the lot of them! If you can let me know where you got him from I'd be very happy! They can be kept in ponds in the south of the UK and i want some for a new pond project in Devon.
Thats a pelteobagrus fulvidraco, a tawny dragon catfish. Its a slow growing coolwater catfish from asia, it will eventually get to about a foot long. You wont want any fish smaller than 4 inches long in with that one day !
