 I  found  this  fish  specie  in  a  water  reservoir  atop  the  fort.  They  look  like  some  kind  of  catfish  but  I'm  not  sure,  please  help  me  Identify  them.  They  were  total  5-6  in  number.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 Along  with  these  there  were  lots  of  guppies  too.
 
 
 
 and  this  is  me  at  the  reservoir/tank.

 yes  its  a  cat  fish  but  you  can't  use  for  aquarium  purpose.  It  grows  very  fast.

 Ok,  I  don't  have  more  pics  of  fish  as  this  was  a  trek  basically  and  I  had  carried  fish  net  with  me  to  catch  fish  if  I  can  on  the  way  so  basically  I  was  the  only  fish  enthusiast  in  the  group.  These  pics  were  taken  by  the  guy  I  requested  in  the  group,  I  don't  have  camera  either  Sad

 is  these  the  one  known  as  african  cat  fish.  If  so  i  beleive  they  are  banned  in  india.  As  they  pose  a  threat  of  depleting  all  the  other  fish  community  if  accidently  introduced  to  rivers

 Hi,
 
 I  frequently  stay  in  Raigad  as  I  have  a  house  there  and  these  buggers  infest  the  waters  there.  In  fact  I  have  to  frequently  call  local  fishermen  to  get  them  removed  from  our  well.  I  remember  one  at  least  3  to  4  feet  in  length  and  by  the  way  the  locals  claim  that  they  are  very  tasty.
 
 The  barbs  are  very  sharp  and  God  bless  the  soul  who  gets  one  of  these  entangled  in  a  net.
 
 Yes  they  are  definitely  a  Catfish  and  in  times  of  low  water  levels  they  can  even  travel  across  land.  (At  least  this  is  what  I  have  heard)
 
 Have  fun.
