Catfish looks like Pimelodus pictus, (Spotted (Angelicus) Pimelodus).

Photo not fantastic but the Tetra could be a Serpae Tetra.

Re: ID tetra and catfish please? #6
Yes, it's a Serpae Tetra Should be in a shoal of at least 6, softer more acidic water. Can be a bit nippy TBH. Keep an eye out for fin damage on other fish.

Not too hot on catfish (not my forte really) but images on google look like Pimelodus pictus. Don't these need very large tanks though?

EagleC has a pimelodus pictus, this is Eagle's one for compare and contrast:

Caresheet for them: http://www.fishkeeping.co.uk/modules/ ... sheet.php?caresheetID=135

Don't seem to have a caresheet for serpae tetra though ... *looks hopefully at a kind tropical adviser* ...
