    Smile Catfish Identification Please!

    Hi, I got this catfish from my lfs but they had no idea what it was so could anyone identify it for me please? Thanks!

    Its golden-mustard yellow with a black spot on each side right behind its gills.

    Thanks!

    Looks to be a Horabagrus brachysoma per planet catfish. Here is a link. Common names are Bullseye Catfish, Golden Red Tail Catfish, Solar Catfish, Sun Catfish

    What size is the tank, Rich?
    Hakuna Matata! What a wonderful phrase!

    Ut O! That fish gets almost a foot and a half, I think.
    Save the rivers and reefs... Buy captive raised when possible!

    Question The Sun Catfish

    I just got a Sun Catfish yesterday, he has a thing with standing on his tail in the corner of the tank, I know my tank is not too small, I have a 125 gallon tank. Are they known for "special" things? Plus I was told it was a different name and that he is not going to get much bigger.
