  Clariidae

Clariidae Clariidae =  ( klair EE id dee) 

This is the family commonly known as the "Walking Catfishes"
owing to their ability to move overland after their previous home has 'dried up'. These catfish are unique as to have an elongated dorsal without a hard spine.

Not really a species suitable for the home aquarium although very hardy. They can be kept in very large tanks or ponds. Looked on also as a food fish in its native habitat.
