 No  patterns  as  of  now  Balaji.   Initially  they  looked  very  much  like  vittatus  but  as  they  grew,  all  the  patterns  almost  vanished.   I  was  in  the  opinion  if  the  possible  montanus  came  to  me  by  mistake  when  we  were  packing  the  cats  in  the  end.
 I  was  in  the  opinion  all  the  cats  that  were  collected,  were  from  Achankovil.

 Nope.  I  remember  we  collected  some  Mystus  from  the  'Moon  Shine'  spot  and  another  location  on  the  first  day  itself.

 Hi  Andy,
 I  think  both  of  what  I've  got  are  males,  and  they  sorta  seem  to  ignore  each  other  and  no  fiesty  behavior  so  far.   But  still  I  see  some  green  on  the  top  3  rows  of  scales  around  early  morning.

 That's  right,  the  only  Mystus  collected  from  the  leaf  litter  at  Achan  Kovil  should  be  with  Balaji.  The  other  two  catfish  collected  there  were  Batasio  sp.

 Some  updates  on  the  cats  I  took  back.
 
 This  is  the  same  you  have  Madhu????
 
 
 
 The  one  on  the  right  might  be  the  one  from  Achenkovil.  I  actually  had  2  of  'em  but  ione  was  found  torn  apart  after  a  coupla  weeks.

 Yups  Balaji!   All  4  of  what  I  have  are  those,  not  a  single  one  of  the  Achan  Kovil  type.

 Hi  Madhu  ,  the  Barb  looks  in  good  nick  Thumb Up  judging  by  the  large  eye  I  would  suspect  it  could  get  to  a  decent  size  ?

 Not  much  of  growth  Andy.   In  around  6  months  with  live  bloodworms  &  frozen  artemia  it  has  managed  from  3"  to  just  a  bit  over  5"  and  to  mention,  the  biggest  one  in  the  shoal  in  the  wild  what  i  saw  should  be  nothing  more  than  7".

 Hi  Andy,
 I'd  still  go  with  Gonoproktopterus  as  it  swims  in  the  lower  side  of  the  tank,  very  often  sniffing  sand  and  the  downward  pointed  mouth.   But  Rahul  seems  to  have  a  similar  looking  Barbodes.   Just  need  to  wait  for  him  to  confirm.   AFAIK,  most  Gonoproktopterus  grow  to  around  a  foot  long,  and  since  this  isn't  growing  much,  it  further  adds  to  the  confusion.

 Madhu,
 
 Is  it  possible  that  these  are  slow  growers  and   Slow  to  mature  like  canarensis?
 
 I  hope  the  one  I  have  is  Tor  kudree,  I  am  having  doubts  since  it  resembles  the  fish  in  your  picture.  We  caught  it  when  I  was  around  2"  around  Tunga  river  and  after  10  months  it  is  inly  4-5".  
 
 Of  course  no  live  feed  as  of  now,  only  pelets  Smile  
 
 Regards,
 Nayak.

 Yours  is  a  Tor  Nayak.   No  doubt!
 BTW,  canaernsis  is   a  slow  maturer,  but  a  pretty  fast  grower.
