    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/2007/01/pintado-speckled-catfish-of-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.

    My LFS has something like that, too. The owner said they are channel cats. Neither he nor I are completely sure, though.
