 Thanks  all.  Smile
 Balaji,  nice  pics!  I'm  prtobably  going  to  agree  with  you  on  the  ID  as  well.
 
 Apuda2010,  your  ID  is  correct,  H.  fossilis  is  known  as  shinghi  locally.  However  the  Mystus  sold  in  our  markets  is  more  often  than  not  Mystus  vittatus  and  not  M.  tengara.  Locally  however  it  is  still  known  as  tangra.
 H.  fossilis  and  Mystus  are  indeed  found  aplenty,  alive  and  not,  both  in  the  markets  within  the  city  and  outside.  However  i  highly  doubt  that  a  piebald/albino/or  any  other  colour  morph  for  practically  any  fish  will  find  itself  in  one  of  the  local  markets.  
 The  rest  of  the  Mystus  as  you  are  probably  aware  is  not  found  in  W.  Bengal.
 
 Gokul,  precisely  why  i  put  them  in  the  photo  tank.  :D
 
 Here  are  a  couple  more  -
 
 Spereta  aor.
 
 
 
 
 Ompok  bimaculatus.
 
 
 
 
 Ompok  malabaricus.
 
 
 
 The  malabaricus  was  huge,  barely  fit  into  the  photo  tank.
 
 Thats  it  for  the  week  guys,  going  out  into  the  field  for  a  while,  will  update  the  following  weekend.  Smile

 I  think  the  O.bimaculatus  you  have  posted  is  an  O.malabaricus  only.  The  Indian  O.bimaculatus  are  mostly  silver  in  colour.  Other  than  this,  they  differ  in  the  count  of  the  anal  fin  rays.  
 
 Here  s  a  coupla  pics  of  a  malabaricus  we  collected  from  the  Tambraparani  River.  Not  the  most  exquisite  pics.

 Days'  s  M.armatus  figure  represents  a  very  'stout'  fish.  The  one  here  seems  to  be  quite  slender  when  compared.  
 
 
 Anyone  wanna  take  a  shot  at  morphometrics  /  meristics???

 Here  s  M.armatus  as  ID'd  on  another  forum.  Collected  from  the  Tambraparani.  
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 Body  depth  and  shape  of  the  adipose  seem  to  suggest  its  different  from  the  one  posted  here.
 
 
 Ps  :  I  know  I  need  to  clean  the  photo  tank.

 Hello  folks,  i'm  back.  :D
 
 Balaji,  still  not  sure  about  the  Ompok,  the  bimaculatus  in  your  pics  is  a  juvenile,  looks  to  be  3-4"  in  length?  The  specimen  i  saw  was  a  good  8-9.5"  long,  so  comparing  the  two  with  colouration  would  not  be  justifiable.
 
 The  M.  armatus  pictured  was  the  only  one  we  could  catch  out  of  the  tank,  probably  as  it  was  weak  from  not  being  able  to  eat  properly.  He  keeps  all  the  Mystus  together  in  one  tank  so  i'm  guessing  there  would  be  plenty  territorial  issues.  Some  fish  are  very  healthy,  some  underfed.
 
 Here's  a  couple  of  Mystus  vittatus  which  is  probably  a  pair,  they're  kept  separately  in  another  tank,  and  so  there's  a  possibility  of  them  spawning.
 
 The  male  -
 
 
 The  female-
 
 
 The  pair  together

 The  O.bimaculatus  I  posted  here  is  small.  There  was  another  slightly  bigger  one  with  the  same  colouration  too.  Not  the  giant  sizes  you  have  posted   though.  Much  smaller.
 
 Does  it  have  a  peduncular  spot???  I  cant  see  one  in  the  pics.  You  will  see  a  very  faint  peduncular  spot  in  the  silver  one  I  have  posted  thereby  confirming  the  bimaculatus  ID.  
 
 Had  the  Mystus  'checked  out'  by  a  friend.  The  tengra    is   carcio.

 Balaji,  the  armatus  is  definitely  too  skinny  and  underfed  to  give  a  conclusive  ID,  i'll  try  and  see  if  we  can  catch  one  of  the  healthier  fish  and  shoot  it  this  week.  Could  be  M.  montanus  as  well.
 
 I'm  still  maintaining  that  the  fish  is  M.  tengara  and  not  M.  carcio.  These  were  caught  locally  from  near  Kolkata  from  what  i  know,  and  carcio  would  be  from  N.  bengal  and  furthur  upwards.  Also,  i  haven't  scrutinized  the  fish  dorsally,  but  carcio  should  have  a  long  and  wide  fontanelle  with  a  thick  bar  splitting  it.  I'll  have  to  go  look  at  the  fish  again  closely,  but  i  don't  remember  noticing  that,
 
 The  M.  malabaricus  and  M.  canarensis  look  correct  though.
 
 More  coming  up  soon.
