No idea what the first cat is, the second is a south american bumblebee catfish.
Current fish (includes all 3 running tanks): Polypterids, severums (of which I raised from eggs), gouramis, plecos (gold spot ones & a gurupa), loaches (zebras, yoyos, & a kubotai), macculocchi spotted silver dollars, an African butterfly fish, & Ctenopomas (a leopard & an ansorgii)

Thanks for the link Jchillin, but nope, he doesn't look like that. I know the picture isn't the best.

RoK, yup that's him alright, down to the 3 sets of strategically placed whiskers. Thanks.

They both came from the same tank and it was labeled bumble goby and bumblebee cat. So when I got them and looked those up, they didn't fit either description. But when the "real" bumblebee cat was little, I thought it was the goby, he didn't have whiskers then and his markings were not wavy as they are now and he was so small he looked like a goby. But now he has grown and showing his true self.

This is the one I found when I first was seaching, and it is the same cat you showed, but doesn't really look like him.

I tried to describe the 1st cat to a LFS that I trust, he told me something but I can't remember it, just that it started with a "P", not pictus... Maybe that small amount of information can help with the search.

THanks again everyone.
