[Ebook] The New Guide to Aquarium Fish – Catfishes
Garfishes are arguably the most diverse of all fishes, in body form, lifestyle, size, and distribution. There are over 2000 different species, principally from tropical freshwaters, but also from temperate climes and marine waters. Indeed, catfishes are to be found in every continent and ocean with the exception of the poles. With such diversity, only generalizations can be given in this brief introduction, but this same variety can also be the catalyst for a deeper interest on the part of the aquarist in this group of fishes.
