Anyone able to tell me what this catfish is?
Had it for a couple of years now, and it is the size of an adult bristle nose catfish. Therefore I'm doubting it's a sailfin.

You are right... They tend to grow quite fast... Hmmm... I had a 10cm gold spot and 13cm gibby over a 14 month period that didn't display much growth in a 6ft tank also. I just assumed it was down to competition at feeding times with the rest of the tank mates and water conditions/changes that possibly could have been part of growth or maybe just stunted?!

Be interested to know the breed though...

Anyone?
