How to use "Genus paralichthys" in context?
The Genus Paralichthys contains both salt water and fresh water species of catfish, many of which are common aquarium pets. All of the members of this genus are quite small, accounting for only about a tenth of a pound when fully grown. Because of this small size and general docility, these fish make good additions to beginner fishkeeping enclosures.
The paralichthys genus is broken down into a few different subgenres, each with a specific set of characteristics.
