Smile WTB Pimelodus maculatus Lacépède

Hi Friends,

I want to buy several of these Catfish. I need females and males. I have a catfish tank and will soon be getting a bigger tank for them. I have a 43 gallon tank, at this time for them. I am not concerned at what size that they are, any size if fine. I have many tanks.

I just got a Pimeldus ornatus from the Wet Spot, I will see if I can find any and let you know about the maculatus. I wouldn't mind getting some too!

Hi Decker,

I have been thinking of a themed fish room. All Spotted FISH. Spotted Cichlids, Spotted Cory Cats, and Spotted Maculatus (beware on these - they are not all the same design).

I also hope to have a few other cichlids, kribs, tropheus, and maybe killifish. I found a few interesting fish that I like. Here is the list of fish I have or fish I want:

Pimelodus maculatus Lacépède 1803 South America: Paraná and São Francisco River basins.

Rubber lip Plecos

Clown Plecos

Neolamprologus tretocephalus - Wild

Protomelas "Ndiwe" Fire Hap - Wild

Pelvichachromis taeniatus Moliwe
Own 2 pairs (in the mail to me).

Assassin Snails
Neolamprologus Tetracanthus "Magara" - can have 2,000 fry from 1 pair

I just got 2 rubberlips for $6 a pice loving those little guys. I also picked up a rare Chaetesoma sp "pisqui river" which has a cool pattern. I love my Pimelodus ornatus; he's really coming into his own and seems to have a TURBO switch when i feed his tank, lol.

I just got this spotted little guy

Planet Catfish said they maxed out at 22", but after I ordered him I realized he's going to get really big.

You really have me interested in the maculatus now, I will be on the prowl until I find one. My LFS just ordered my some rare fish. I will ask the manager when I pick my fish up if he knows where to find any.

Kitty, I just talkedd to the Manager of 50 Fathoms my main LFS and he said thaat he has seen the macultus on his lists. He had 3 new shipments today and shop was relly busy so he said he would reseqrch it further and get back to me. My girlfried and I scored some relly nice plecos today and Mikey the manager and I are pretty tight and he's gotten me plenty of rare catfish in the past. I will keep you posted on maculatus.

That catfish is Brachyplatystoma capapretum, a new member of the tigrinus family discovered in 2005!!
