Pimelodus pictus “Pictus Catfish”


This is a fish from my childhood; I drooled over these in the pet shop at the mall (I’m dating myself now) and I remember it being one of the more “expensive” fish my mother actually bought for our first aquarium. We used to call these “Angelicus Catfish” although these days Pictus Catfish seems to be the preferred (and more appropriate) name for Pimelodus pictus. This is a catfish that stays a very manageable size…maxing out under 5″. They’re predatory, so small fish become dinner fare.  Read more below.
