Hi,

Rich and I just got some upside down catfish...not really sure what the correct name is - they're shaped like corys with a dark brown, leopard colouration, but they swim upside down!.. I never knew they existed and was truly amazed!!

I\ll try to get some pix of them swimming

Thanks Rose,

working on a slight camera problem, but will have pix up soon - although they hardly ever swim around and have taken to clinging to ornaments with which their colours blens (like like aquarium lizards) lol. When they do swim though, its like a cory swimming upside down - and man they are fast!

I've seen those at Petsmart. They're pretty awesome. Can't wait for pix! ;D

Yup, these've got to be the most unusual fish we ever acquired.. as soon as we sort out our software problem, we'll get on snapping some shots..they are rather reclusive though, so we'll have to stalk them like a pair of paparazzi!..lol.
