Hi GUYS I was abel to get one of the black bullheads with  silver spots
from A local pet shop fish wholesaler  and I am thinking of buying his
operation later in the year.Anyhow
it is A native .He called it Ictideas  puntatus.
But its not a channel cat I am sure of that .This cat is black with a
white belly, its silver speckled over the black body with a squared off
tail, the dorsal tip is white and two of them killed a channel cat 3
times there size in 12hrs. by skinning the channels back bare to the
flesh with their pectoral fins .  They seem to have a low tolerance for
other catfish types the wholesaler 
said the one I got from him killed a lot of pictus cats so he was happy
to sell it   
He said they come from  the deep south down in to central America.

It must be just A dam  good looking bullhead Specie ??   And now how to
breed them??

As for the Milwaukee Aquarium Society .  I Highly recommend it   their
next meeting is  this friday the  19th of may at 7:pm at St.Peter
