Breed of catfish #1
Hi all.
I'd love to know the type of catfish i have please.
I've had him (?) 7 years now and he's really lovely. He's 10 inches from nose to tail, and his longest whiskers are 8 inches long. The scar on his side is where he somehow rested on my heater and he burnt himself quite badly. Fortunatly he healed up within a couple of weeks. I'd just like to know a bit about him.
Thanks in advance.
Andy

Re: Breed of catfish #2
I think he's a Pimelodus blochii. The colouring is very variable on this species. https://www.planetcatfish.com/common/species.php?species_id=653
