Did you know fantastic help is an anagram of Planet Catfish? This forum is for those of you with pictures of your catfish who are looking for help identifying them. There are many here to help and a firm ID is the first step towards keeping your catfish in the best conditions.
I have two types of whiptails I can not identify. Hopefully you folks here can help me out. There are two photos labeled type 1 and 4 labeled type 2. The one labeled type 1 breeds all the time but I have been unable to raise any of the fry. The ones labeled as type 2 are a group of 4 I picked up as an unidentified sturisoma. I know the pictures are not the best but alas I am no photographer. http://photos.yahoo.com/bc/tippmann_dad/lst?.dir=/Whiptail+cats Any help would be appreciated. Thanks for your help in advance.
Edit: Okay after much searching I believe the type 2 whiptail to be some type of Loricaria. Very similar to lata but not quite.
Edit: Fixed photo link

Its hard to ID him with those pictures. Go to the Cat-eLog, search By Common Names, go down till you see whiptails. They have 8 different kinds of whiptails. You can see which one looks most like yours.
Type 2 looks like Hemiloricaria Lanceolata, I could be wrong though.
