The suckermouth catfish is named for its sucker-like mouth, which allows it to adhere to a surface, as well as to hold and rasp at food.
This fish was at the botanical gardens in St. Louis. It looks like you are looking at the top of the fish. The fish is actually attached to the glass and what you see above it's mouth are gills, not eyes.

Who would think that a fish called a 'Suckermouth' could be soooooo pretty! I love his colors and patterns too!

Tatinha

I like the colors, the shape and the patern... well I like this fish. Thanks

Without your explanation, it would be difficult to get the proper perspective on this little sucker. Hard to believe that this is his underside!

Hi lyndee. So glad I got to meet you this weekend! Can't wait to see our pictures.

Thank you warbler. This tank was in an atrium under a little waterfall. It had a few other fish in it. Yes, I thought it had a very interesting pattern on it.

The pattern on its belly looks like coral.
