 Schilbeidae

 

Schilbeidae = ( SKILL bid dee )  

This family of catfish are in the main, midwater swimmers, and are commonly known as glass catfishes due to some of them having transparent bodies

They can sometimes be confused with the Siluridae family but the Silurids do not possess an adipose fin and their dorsals are usually very small. Quite easy to keep in the aquarium as the vast majority will accept flake food.
