I'll go back to the place we bought it and try to find out - I don;t have any pictures because he is highly nocturnal - likes to spend most of his time upside down like a bat. He i very dark, rich browm with creamy spots, a VERY high top fin with gorgeous translucent membrane, forked tailfin and very pronounced barbels. Has grown lot in the three months I've had him - from about 1.5 inches to close to three!There are several species of fish with the common name "threadfin catfish." I don't know of any from Africa though. Do you know the fish's scientific name?
Also, all of his his fins, which are broad and very plumey are striped, dark brown and clear. His eyes are very large and bulbous, and he really isn;t "spotted with cream color, its more like his dark brown color is sub-divided into a mottled patchwork with cream lines. He is a GORGEOUS creature! Getting ready to get my new 55 set up to accomodate his growth along with a bunch of my other current fish.There are several species of fish with the common name "threadfin catfish."
