Identify this fish!

I have no clue what this fish that i got is specifically, it was in a tank labeled assorted cory cats (3.99) but would like to know for sure(unfortunately was missing a fin or didn't grow) i call him stubs. I have a 10 gallon tank with a betta and this fish aswell.Want to make sure its not going to be to big a fish for the tank.Any help would be greatly appreciated thanks.

Definitely not a cory cat.. pretty sure that is a type of upsidedown catfish (some species of synodontis).

I would take it back.. it will need a much larger tank than you have. It's always better to research the needs of the fish you buy before buying them.. rather than bringing them home and figuring it out later.

Yes, I believe he is a synodontis as well. He will get up to 6 inches or so. I had one in an 125 gallon tank and he got big enough to eat a betta if he wanted. Here is a link.

It looks like it could be a spotted pim. (pimelodus pictus) It's similar to a cory cat, but it could grow to be a lot bigger than your betta. They also prefer to be in small schools.
