    Common Name: Red-tailed Catfish, Flat-nosed Catfish, Antenna Catfish
    Scientific Name: Phractocephalus hemioliopterus
    Family: Pimelodidae

    Note: This is an EXTREMELY large catfish, and will require a tank of at least 1000 gallons once fully grown! Think before you purchase this species of fish anywhere!
