Sisoridae

 

Sisoridae = ( sis SORE id dee ) 

This is the largest family of catfishes in Asia with around 100 species known.

They are not too well known to aquarists as they are only sporadically exported. The most common being the genus, Gagata, Bagarius and Glyptothorax. Known collectively as "hill stream catfishes" due to many of them being found in fast flowing rivers. The Sisorids vary in body shape and are probably the hardest family for the aquarist to identify.
