Can someone tell from these pics if this is so? Also...what is the difference between Cochliodon and Suttoni? Which one do I have?

I am thinking about selling this fish and want to be sure I know exactly what I am selling.

Thanks

Hi Steve,

It certatinly looks like the blue-eyed panaque, Panaque cochliodon and a nice looking speciman at that. I have a factsheet on this species here
which should explain a bit more of the confussion surrounding this species.

By the way all right to use your pics for the photo gallery? and what name wil I credit them to, Steve? If you don't want to give out your full name you can just PM or e-mail me your full name. Cheers.
Allan.

Thanks for the fact sheet, very interesting. Mine looks very much like the second picture on the fact sheet rather than the first.

I have only had him a couple of days. I found him in a tank at a garden centre, where he had been for nearly a year. He is a very confident fella, I have had to remove a Sailfin twice his size from the tank to stop the agression it was showing towards it. He has a few very light marks on his body that look like they will get better, and he looked a lot better after just one night. He has a nice full belly, at the shop they were feeding him algae wafers. I measured him and he is exactly 9".

You are welcome to use the pics for your gallery, as I understand there are not many of these around to photograph! You can credit them to 'Stephen Hack'.

I have had a bit of interest in this fish before I have officially put it up for sale. If you know of any collector or specialist that would be interested in buying this fish then point them in the direction of this thread. Although I must add it wont be cheap!! LOL

Steve

Hi Steve,

Thanks for the pics for the photo gallery. If you would like to put your blue-eye in the catfish for sale or wants forum and see what happens there as we have had a bit of success in the past with this section of the forum, so you may be lucky :)
