 Here's  pics  of  a  variety  of  catfish,  mostly  all  belonging  to  a  friend  in  Kolkata  who  is  a  catfish  freak.  Smile
 I'll  keep  updating  with  fish  from  his  collection.
 
 To  start  with,  here  are  two  oddballs.
 
 A  'piebald'  Heteropneustes  fossilis.  
 
 
 
 
 And  an  albino  Rita  rita.  Perfect  specimen.
 
 
 
 
 More  coming  up.  Smile

 Thanks  all,  they  really  are  nice  fish.  I  wish  I  owned  them.   Sad     Smile  
 
 Jibran,  the  Rita  is  about  5"  long,  voracious  as  hell,  loves  to  chomp  up  any  feeders.
 
 Raj,  the  tanks  they  are  kept  in  are  well  encrusted  with  algae  and  at  floor  level,  these  were  all  taken  in  a  photography  tank.
 
 And  now,  the  Mystus  series.  Am  not  sure  of  all  the  ID's,  so  would  love  some  inputs  -
 
 Mystus  armatus.
 
 
 
 
 
 Mystus  malabaricus.
 
 
 
 
 
 Mystus  canarensis.
 
 
 
 
 
 Mystus  tengara.
 
 
 
 
 
 Got  a  few  more  species  left.  :)
 
 No  sign  of  Balaji?

 Ha  ha.  Well  Balaji  just  got  back  from  a  dust  bowl  named  Aruppukottai  and  the  most  useless  thing  there  was  a  net.  Dry  as  hell.  Collected  a  few  kilos  of  dirt  and  quite  a  few  kilos.  Yummy  meat.  
 
 
 As  for  the  cats,  Neil,  lemme  assure  you  that  I  am  turning  into  various  shades  of  green  at  the  moment.  I  shall  get  to  work  now  and  continue  the  drooling  there  and  see  if  any  Id's  come  up  on  the  Mystus.

 Neil,  awesome  close  ups.  Never  could  take  a  clear  pic  of  my  cats.  They  almost  seem  to  blend  into  the  decor.  Same  old  fuji  +  diopter?

 @hrishi007,
 
 Heteropneustes  fossilis  is  called  Singhi  by  local  bengalis.
 
 Mystus  tengara  is  commonly  known  as  Tangra,
 
 Both  are  available  aplenty  in  Kolkata  markets  as  edible  fish  in  tons.
 
 However  ,  if  you  travel  a  little  upcountry  outside  Kolkata  ,  chances  are  you  will  find  both  alive  even  in  markets.

 That  armatus  is  one  extremely  beautiful  looking  specimen  I  should  say.  Very  very  Olyrid  in  body  shape.  Cant  stop  ogling  at  it.
 
 Here  s  a  coupla  pics  of  a  M.malabaricus  /  canarensis  I  stole  from  Rahul.  ID  depends  on  who  you  follow.  He  collected  this  somewhere  in  Waynad.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 To  my  eyes,  this  seems  to  bear  more  resemblance  to  the  malabaricus  you  have  posted.
