Species? Pimelodidae?

Post by dmcat »

Hi all! Saw this fish for sale in online store. Looks interesting but have no clue on species (honestly is not sure on family either: Pimelodidae? or maybe Bagridae). Was wondering what it is and how big it'll get. I would appreciate any help of experts!!! Cheers, DM.

Thanks, Dave! I was suspecting that it is a hard to id one.

Thank you, Dave! I'd not quote that clueless dude.

I am yet to see any of these, including mine, break 10" or so. Hence, I suppose these are, as many different species as they are, all small growing. On my scale anyway.

Sweet touch :)

But not to diminish the discussions in those links above, there had been some worthwhile ID guesses suggested. There is something to chew on there.
