Aspredinidae = ( az pra DIN id dee )  

This family of Catfish are termed "Banjo Catfishes" due to their banjo-like flattened shapes. Two groups are recognised, the short-tail banjo's with an anal fin the same size as the head and the  long- tail banjo's which posses a very long anal fin with a longer body.  Very nocturnal and will do better over a sand substrate where they can bury themselves
