Found in brackish waters of lagoons and estuaries as well as freshwater rivers. They are bottom feeders and use the barbels around their mouth to detect food. Juveniles form tightly packed schools for feeding which may contain hundreds of fish. They feed on fish, crustaceans and molluscs. Length - 80cm Depth - ?m Widespread Indo-West Pacific
Catfish have venomous spines in the fins which can inflict painful wounds. Stings from Plotosus lineatus may result in death.

Common names Besides being called Colombian Shark Catfish, this catfish is commonly called the Silver-tip Shark and Black-fin Shark. The name recommended by Fishbase is Tete Sea Catfish, but that doesn’t seem to be used much in the trade. In the United States, this catfish is also occasionally called the Iridescent Shark Catfish, a name to the Asian freshwater catfish Pangasius hypophthalmus.These are amazing fish. The proper name for these are "TETE Catfish". The are saltwater fish unlike Petsmart or Petco... or even Wal-Mart label them for sales.
Available in the pet trade under a variety of names, including Colombian shark, silver tipped shark, white tip shark catfish, black fin shark, Christian catfish, Jordan's catfish, and West American cat shark.Help black tipped shark catfish dying 1/26/12 Hello I have a 60 gallon bow front and 2-7" shark cats. I have had these2 for a little over a year. Today when I arrived home from work theywere both nearing death with scratches on them and what looks like aslime covering their body. All of their fins were shredded, swollenanuses, a film over their eyes, and these guys have been in greathealth up until today. About 3 weeks ago I lost my first fish in yearsin this tank. He was a 7" electric blue acai cichlid. I amconcerned about what is causing this. I did a 50% water change, addedsome salt, and dosed the tank with Melafix. Symptomsare unnoticed until they are floating and I watch my fish nightly. Thanks in advance for any help. Dash
Do also review your choice of medication; Melafix isn't much ratedas a cure, despite it's cheap price and attractive marketing. Atbest, it's a preventative, something to use if a fish is damaged bytransit or fighting but not yet infected or sick. My guess would be these fish are sickbecause of a poor environment, and until you fix their world, theyaren't going to get any better. Cheers, Neale.>This study describes the diet composition, diet overlap and prey diversity in two economically and ecologically important marine catfish species: the bronze catfish (Netuma bilineata) and the blacktip sea catfish (Plicofollis dussumieri) collected between January and December 2015 from the northern Arabian Sea coast of Pakistan. Stomach data of 342 bronze catfish and 283 blacktip sea catfish were examined. Diet composition and feeding strategy of each species by identification of stomach contents were weighed and enumerated. Both species primarily consumed teleosts, Brachyura and small amounts of a wide variety of prey items; however, specialization was a more common trait for the bronze catfish than for the black tip sea catfish. The Morisita‐Horn index showed considerable diet overlap in percentage of mean weights (0.847) than in numbers (0.612) between co‐prey pairs of both species. The highest Bray‐Curtis similarity between the southwest monsoon (SWM) and south inter monsoon (SIM) was observed in bronze catfish and lowest between autumn inter monsoon (AIM) seasons in both species. While Bray‐Curtis dissimilarity was observed, both species share diet niches and diet overlap. The present study evaluation of the feeding strategy and potential competition between two sympatric species of marine catfishes can provide the framework for their conservation and management in the region.
