    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! :)

    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.
