so i just found out that lots of people eat the iridescent sharks we see in the pet shops! theyre also known as swai and are farmed in asia for food. the restaurant i work at serves them as catfish. it actually tasted pretty good. so has anyone else ever tried iridescent shark (swai)??

But they *are* catfish. And at 2ft long I think they're better suited to the dinner table than they are the home aquarium.
