    One of my local fish stores, has some sort of catfish named speckled catfish. Its about 3-4'' and its brown with spots. Weriod looking spots. He said another name for them is salt and pepper catfish... does anyone know what this catfish can be??? I have no info... so I am debating on getting a few. If I do get one or two I'll post pics for ID.

    i googled this:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Salt_and_pepper_catfish
    that would mean it's a corydoras , but it maxes out at one inch, so that's not it.
    and i found this on the speckled catfish:
    http://fishbigfish.blogspot.com/2007...-pantanal.html

    and i quote:
    One of my favorites is the Pintado or Speckled Catfish.
    This is not your ordinary river cat. The Pintado, or pseudoplatystoma corruscans, is a real fighter and is known for putting up hour or more long fights.

    Pintados get up to over 100 lbs and in the Pantanal it is normal to catch the 40-60 pounders.

    Uhm, so now that's a whole different story then the lil' cory...
    I wonder what the pics will tell us, you made me curious.
    Our fish don't grow too big, our tank becomes too small!

    My LFS has something like that, too. The owner said they are channel cats. Neither he nor I are completely sure, though.
    Oscarum Monstruoso:
    In my experience, people who are so eager and open about the prices they pay are usually lying in order to hide how much they actually paid. The way you can tell who is lying is to ask them for topless pics of their wife. If they comply, they are open and honest and are most likely telling the truth. If they won't, then you know that they're not sharing the true amount they paid.
