My favorite of course being the Redtail but I'll never have a tank to fit one so my second favorite is the S.A. Bumblebee Cat. I picked up two of these little guys and couldn't be happier

Very cool. I actually saw bumblebee cats at petsmart the other day. My eyes lit up and I could not remember when they started selling them.

I actually found these little guys in a pet shop that sells awesome cichlids. They of course had my Redtail which was like waving a cookie in front of my face and then telling me I couldn't have it but I resisted lol

Is that catfish black and brown? It kinda has the colors of a ball python. I've got a catfish that's brown and black and that's why I'm asking.

Nope they are brown and yellow hence the name Bumblebee
Post a picture of your cat maybe we can identify it for you

Well thank you David
I had to do a bit of rearranging in the tank due to the fact that the Bumblebees took over the Syno's hole in the DW, he swam around acting like a grump until I made more areas for the Bees.

This is my catfish I was talking about. I just saw it at the store and never bothered to look at the name of it on the tank.

I like it too but I rarely see the darn thing come out of its hiding spots.
