Shadow Catfish (Hyalobagrus flavus)


H. ornatus, not H. flavus 1
By Lyndsay Godley on
Either you have listed the wrong species on your website or you deliberately posted the wrong information.

Here is the IUCN link for H. ornatus, which is what you have listed on your website:

Response from Angelfins: "We apologize for the mix up, the scientific name on the website was assigned to the species based on the common name used by the supplier. We are now working on confirmation that the species we received is really Hyalobagrus flavus.

We confirmed that the species we received is Hyalobagrus flavus, the fish we received are between 4 and 5cm long. Hyalobagrus ornatus is a smaller specie and only reaches size of 2.5cm. The fish also has spines only on half of the pectoral fins, which is also typical for that species.
