Hello all, first time poster,

I have an interesting catfish I picked up from the local fish store, and now have forgotten the name of it, each time I go into the store I keep forgetting to ask. I can get a picture of it and post but for now I want to try to describe this guy. He is around 8 inches in length, very flat head, eyes ontop and to the sides of his head, he has long white whiskers, a black top, a white under belly with the black and white converging around mid section of his body, and a mixed black and white tail. I was wondering if anyone had an Idea of who he was off the top of their heads, I looked up black and white catfish and only found the Raphael catfish which does not look like him at all really.

Thanks,

Nate

Thank you so much for the posts, Shovel Nose catfish it is, I googled it and that's exactly what it is : ) Thank you again, I will have to post on another thread, my entire set up someday.
