Re: NFC: How about a Catfish ID?

Looks like a black bullhead, Ameiurus melas.  Could also be a brown
bullhead, Ameiurus nebulosus.  If the pectoral spines are heavily serrated,
it's nebulosus.   If they're only rough textured, it's melas.  At least I
think that's how it goes.  :)  The yellow bullhead has white chin wiskers.
I suppose it could also be the snail, spotted or flat bullheads, but I
don't know the characters on those and they are less frequently encountered.
