What Pseudopimelodidae am I ?

Post by Viktor Jarikov »

What's the ID and the price in your whereabouts (if you know)? The fish is about 3". Found today at Fish Central, Naples, FL. Pics on a cell phone, in-store.

Rather certain it is Pseudopimelodus bufonius (just one that had a real nice meal not long ago) but I've been wrong before...

In the first photo, from the angle, it looks like the caudal fin is rounded whereas in the third photo, it does look to be forked. There are no Pseudopimelodus in the clog that have a rounded caudal fin, so it's probably just the angle. From the distinctive dorsal fin markings, I'd agree it's most likely Pseudopimelodus bufonius.
