Also known as the Red-Tailed Leopard Tiger Shovelnose Catfish. This is a hybrid Catfish that grows to a large size and is thought to naturally occur in the wild in rivers in South America. It is a cross between a regular Tiger Shovelnose and a Red-Tailed Catfish. This fairly new species is becoming popular with many collectors, hobbyists and zoos everywhere. It has only recently been made available to the aquarium industry and farms like ours are now able to offer these awesome hybrids more readily as the population of successful fry is raised.
