Im looking to get some paroon sharks too. Aka (Pangasius Sanitwongsei). Paroons have more longer and sharper tips. Smaller ones almost look the same but the color of paroons is more black and iridescents are dark blue when they're young. The paroon's growth rate is more than iridescents. So choose wise according to your tank size because paroons are what they call "Tank Busters".

Look at the fin that streches to the tail if it has a dot then its a paroon. Also when its young a paroon will have a pointier dorsal then the iridescents rounded fin. Also a paroon wont have any stripes
