The Whiptail Catfish: an Interesting Fish
  by: Wlad Franco-Valias, The Calquarium, Jun 2000
As much as beauty is the eye of the beholder, I think the many varieties of whiptail catfish fall in the "interesting looking" category.

  by: Natasha Kapty, The Calquarium, Sep 1996

They quote Mark Twain: "The Catfish is a Plenty Good Enough Fish For Anyone". Great catfish resource.

A fun and professional looking hobbyist site from an obviously proud Scot, Allan James.
