Mystus bimaculatus belongs to the family Bagridae from Asia namely Sumatra Indonesia and Malaysia. This catfish is documented as being found in the peat swamps of Sumatra.

Mystus bimaculatus is sometimes thought of as being a member of the family Pimelodidae from South America, which clearly it is not due to the fact that this fish has nasal barbels, which is something that pimelodids lack, also coupled with the fact that this fish is Asian in origin. This particular species is not commonly available, but is well worth looking out for and is ideal for smaller aquariums.
