Sorry, didn't know where else to post or another site to ask.

Just picked up a used tank and it included a catfish which looks like a Pictus cat but I don't think it is. Anyone have any idea of what it actually is and if it would get along with some larger Haps?

Thanks

I think you have a good catfish there a Pimelodus I think but not the common Pimelodus pictus, ask on planet catfish this bit of the site http://www.planetcatfish.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=13 to be sure.
As to will it mix well with big larger haps I may be being contivertial but there are lots and lots of big hybrid cheap Synos that mix well with haps, who knows for sure on this guy. For sure not me. :wink:
It will for sure gobble up any fry released in the main tank but then thats a good thing?
You kind of need to Id it to get wheather it will stand your pH but then I guess you know that and thats why you posted.

All the best James

PS I am having probs logging in to that site such a deep lurker that I am.
