Chrysichthys ID…if possible

Post by Joshuakahan »

Hi, I got these guys as aluminum catfish, C. Longipinnis. But it looks like the dorsal is too short. Any ideas on which species?
Thanks

The seller should know the country of origin. I'd lean towards C. aluuensis as an ID particularly if they turn out to be from Nigeria. If not then I know someone who knows the genus really well and I can ask.

There are two species in the Cat-eLog that I never got to ID but almost certainly are described species.

HTH,

The seller didn’t know much about them, said he never had them before, if you can ask that would be awesome. Thanks for the info!
