Cats4uandme, sorry but the catfish Larry Dahlberg caught is not a p. coruscans.

It is a brachyplatystoma filamentosum aka piraiba.

Its a hard fish to find but lately a few have made it to a LFS in Michigan and a vendor online had some.

Here is a pic of two I had:

One died but the other one is hanging in there. I have 4 being shipped to me tonight and I will have to pic them up at the airport.

They are truly monsters and I and a few guy who own a b. filamentosum are trying to see how big they can grow within 6 months.

Here is the pic of the current verified world record, its 7ft 9 inches and weighs 313 lbs.
