Tropical - Fish - Pictures .com

This is a tropical fish site for all tropical fish enthusiasts from beginner to expert. It has some nice tropical fish pictures and will hopefully have something of interest for all freshwater and marine fish keepers. These tropical fish pages provide some information about some of my favourite fish, along with tropical fish pictures of them. I have kept fish for many years now, ranging from community to marine. Over this period I have been drawn towards catfish, and the cichlids, which I must confess, through there antics have become my favourites. I now keep African and American cichlids, along with some catfish and plecs.

Catfish

Catfish are a fascinating and diverse group of fish which have become hugely popular as aquarium fish. They range from the tiny Otocinclus to giants like the Red-Tailed catfish. All catfish possess one or more pairs of barbels, one of their most distinguishing features. Catfish are also scaleless, and some are protected instead by 'armour' consisting of bony plates. The variety of size and form of catfish means there is a species to suit almost any aquarium setup.
