''Kryptopterus bicirrhis'', often called the glass catfish, is an Asian glass catfish species of the genus ''Kryptopterus''. Until 1989, the concept of ''K. bicirrhis'' included its smaller relative ''Kryptopterus vitreolus'' . Its scientific name ''K. bicirrhis'' and common name glass catfish are often still used in the aquarium fish trade to refer to the actual ''K. vitreolus''; as it seems, the larger and more aggressive true ''K. bicirrhis'' was only ever exported in insignificant numbers.
