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.
In reply to a few of the members- i have had 3 i.d sharks so i know what they look like, and i also know they are only worth £5. But this one looked different, thats why i bought it- knowing i could take it back anyway. you pay your money you take your chances. if it was a genuine baby giant mekong , then it would be worth £££!!\ So from my point of view i was in a no lose situation. I didnt realize they are that rare that i cant find 1 single photo of a real baby mekong at that size.
The original photo was the ad pic from they guy who i bought it off- i presume from his i-phone
Unfortunately on here you can only upload 3 photos no more than 4mb. The 10 i took were all 5mb+, so after downsizing you lose quality.- Thats why i redirected to monster fish keepers where i displayed all 10 in full quality. Ill will put 3 more on now.
Max, I think every one here thinks it is an IDS. Moreover, everyone on MFK told you it is an IDS. If no one writes here after this post anything different, you can rest assured everyone thinks it is an IDS.
Racoll, you are right. I misinterpreted the OP's words and was thinking the OP pic was of a different fish. Had I realized it was one and the same fish, then I'd realize Silurus already said all that was needed. Sorry.

I wrongly assumed "the guy" (must be a LFS) wouldn't bother taking a pic of an actual fish.
The guy i bought it off is a private seller who can get rare fish which is what im after. He is chinese- so ive asked him if he can get chinese perch or Elopichthys bambusa. He had this rare beautiful bass which ive not seen before but it sold by the time i could make an offer-£ 250 sold for at 2ft- which would have gone perfect with my 2ft temenisis peacock bass
