Need help identifying a fish lol

Anyone know what this fish is? My local fish store told me they are freshwater blue whales(very different than the ones in the ocean obviously) but when I google them they look different with small eyes... Reason I want to know is I think theyre sick... the two big ones are fine but one out of the four small ones died with another one about to go and one with white face/mouth, fourth one is ok... rest of the fishes are doing just fine.

Sorry for phone pics they wont stop swimming around and my phone sucks.

They go belly up.
Actually fish can develop bulgy eyes from problems with the water.

Don't see any whiskers/feelers but they remind me a bit of silver-tipped sharks (aka shark catfish). Just a guess but I used to have one and your pix kind of remind me of it.

Irridesent shark for sure. I used to have 2 big suckers about 16 inches each. They are actually a type of cat fish. Get some fungus guard

Thanks for the input guys, I looked up more information on them and it seems like they are frightened by something and started hitting the walls in my tank until their heads get damaged and die... Wished my local fish store told me they would get that big in size...

Our pangasius catfish has a big red sore on his nose. We have tried treating for common diseases with no luck. Does anyone know what this could be? His other nostril is fine and the other pangasius catfish is not showing any signs either. I'm not sure where to turn.

My irrodescent gets spooked really easily and bangs his face off the glass constantly. Maybe that could be it ?

Yeup sad to know that was probably the culprit of why theyre all dying. I only have one small one and one big one left... I am surprised the big ones lived for that long considering the fact they bang their heads on glass when scared. They do it real loud too... when I do water changes you can hear them hit the glass
