Steven Grant is a UK aquarist who specializes in catfish and loaches.

Steve has kept fish for 30 years, and the first fish he bought was an albino Corydoras aeneus. Ever since that moment he has been fascinated with the identity, taxonomy and nomenclature of catfish, despite being hospitalized by a Shovelnose catfish!

He has authored numerous articles for aquarium magazines and the Catfish Study Group Journal, and has a large collection of catfish images hosted by He is also an avid collector of ichthyology books, and his collection includes many rare or out of print books. He has probably bought more books than fish!

Steve has described two species of Corydoras (C. kanei and C. crimmeni), a replacement name for a species of Mystus, one genus of loach, and four subgenera of woodcats. He has also identified the valid description of a loach in an old aquarium publication, identified the true Corydoras arcuatus, and rediscovered the lost syntypes of Synodontis leopardus and of Leiocassis ellenriederii.

Steve will be giving two talks:
Friday, 8:45 PM: “Catfishes of the Madre Dios Region, Peru”
Saturday, 9:00 AM: “Identifying Catfishes in the Aquarium”
