Any idea what this guy might be? He was at Walmart and of course, they didn't have him labeled. Click image for larger version

Not sure need a better pick. It does resemble that other fish. But I am doubting that I have never seen anything like that at Walmart so most likely a pictus cat.

The color isn't right for a pictus. Whiskers aren't nearly long enough for it's size either to be a Pictus.

Honestly I can't really tell if the white is glare or a marking on the fish. But it appears to have some pretty long whiskers.

It is definitely not a pictus cat, look in the feather fin cat family for it, it might be another type of them

I can't see a thing in the pic but check African Butterfly Catfish and Upside down Catfish.

I wouldn't get it, looks like it has an infection or something along the side, who knows what it might be carrying.
