I have an upside down catfish that is black with a very small amount of whitish spots on it. it is about 3 inches long. is this a species of upsidedown catfish that is agressive...posibly a giant asian? it has ripped the lower gills of my serpae tetras and eaten 4 neons. I moved it with my pimelodus and redtail shark afterwords. any help or ideas would be well considered.

that's a big problem with upside down cats; most synodontis swim upside down occaisonally and then become labled "upside down catfish". You're probably looking at Mystus leucophasis, which is more aggressive then the normal upside down cat, synodontis nigriventris
