There are two primary types of saltwater catfish people typically catch, by the way: the hardhead, which is brownish to gray-green with four barbels on the chin, and the less common gafftopsail, which is more blue on the top and only has two barbels on the chin. Neither of the species are the same as the two primary freshwater catfish species: the channel and the flathead catfish. The state record for a hardhead catfish is 3 pounds, 5 ounces, and the record for a gafftopsail is 8 pounds, 14 ounces.

Otocinclus catfish are far smaller than Plecostomus, ranging from 2 to 5 inches with most staying around the 3 inch mark, and are a social fish. Unlike most other freshwater aquarium catfish Otos will get lonely if they are not kept in schools of at least three (preferably 6 or more). There are two types of Oto, the Golden Oto which is predominantly gold with a large horizontal black stripe running from the tip of its nose to the base of its tail, the Zebra Oto is black with several vertical white bands encircling the body. Otos are voracious eaters and a team of three can keep a 29 gallon tank spotless, in fact they may need additional algae wafers to supplement their diet after cleaning a dirty tank.
