Siluridae
Siluridae

 

Siluridae = ( sy LUHR id dee ) 

This family like the Schilibidae are also called "glass catfishes" or sheath fishes.

This is quite a diverse family, from the midwater shoaling Krytopterus to the predatory Wallago and the European wels, Silurus glanis. The difference between the families is quite straightforward, the Silurids do not posses an adipose fin and most of the Shilbids do. The Silurids also have a small notch between the anal and caudal fin whereas the Shilbids have this joined.
