What is the difference? I.D. Or Paroon

Is there a difference between Pangasius Catfish, Paroon Sharks, and an Irredescent Shark? Or are they the same fish? Also which one stays the smallest. And do they like to be kept in pairs or just 1 to a tank?

Pangasius and iridescent sharks are the same species. The paroon catfish is in the same genus, but a different species. You do realize these fish grow to immense sizes right? Like 4 ft? in my own opinion, they are unsuitable for nearly all home aquaria

No problem! Like I said, google stuff! If you hear something new to you, jump on a search engine and chug away. It's hard to use books nowadays due to ever changing information, but the Internet can be a vast wealth of knowledge when used correctly
