  Ictaluridae
Ictaluridae

 

Ictaluridae = ( ik tah LUHR id dee ) 

Native to the freshwaters of North America and into parts of Central America.

Ictalurids are split up into three groups, the catfishes, bullheads and the smaller madtoms. Will do better in an unheated aquarium and are generally a very hardy group of catfishes. Some species can be too large for the home aquarium. The larger species of catfish are important commercial and sport fishes.
