Yes, Steven, the fish in the picture is the red-tailed catfish. I love them, but they're quite expensive and rare. Seen one for sale, 3 foot something like $600 and a baby 2 inch $50. They grow to 5 feet, never seen one in the wild

Unfortunately, in my area, the redtail catfish are pretty common. They are a bit pricey but not over the top. I thinks it's sad that these beautiful fish are sold.

I think it is bad that they are sold but they are lovely to look at my cousen currently has one in his 6 foot tank. The tank is very big and the cat is small atm. He loves it to bits but has said that he will be selling it when he thinks it is to large or starts grow at a fast rate.

Common like anything here, too....and the rather low price tag on 2"-3" fish ($20-$40 each) has far too many people buying them that could never come close to housing a small adult.
