I think you're right, they are Panaque cf_armbrusteri`xingu`. Here are two of my larger ones for you to compare with, between 18-24cm.

Were these fish 'new', or from hobbyists? I'd be interested to hear where they came from as they are so seldom seen now.

Has it only recently started looking different? Or just that you've noticed now?

It does look like Panaque cf_armbrusteri`araguaia` though.

I noticed it recently. They are in a tank with al lot of wood so I don't see them always.

It looks indeed like the `araguaia`
