Not sure of a proper name for these. We have 4 Woodcat catfish.As with most catfish they tend to come out in the dark. They also tend to hide vertically in the plants for some reason. Maybe where they get the name woodcat as they almost look like a branch of the plant.

Kind of looks like Hoplosternum thoracatum or if not then maybe Trachelyopterus fisheri ?
