Was that ikan bawang (Onion fish :>)) or ikan baung of the mystus family http://www.ketengah.gov.my/kenyir/ikan/baung.htm . Anyway you are right it is of the catfish family.

Anyway have you heard of the legend of some Malay people of nearby Tapah cannot eat the Tapah fish as their descendants will get itchy skin. Not as famous as the Mahsuri legend but noteworthy I guess as it may be a reason why Tapah fish is rarely served in Malay food outlets.
