Hi Dana, it looks a little bit like A. vespertinus but I will ask for a second opinion.

Edit: second opinion received - this is a Microglanis species, possibly M. iheringi.

Cake or death?

Hello Matt, and many thanks for your help.
Looks like the catfish is indeed a young Microglanis iheringi.
Not a very good news for me, as it will be difficult to find anyone willing to adopt him. Cry
Best regards,
Dana
