Spotted in the river. Feral population seems established. Possibly a mating pair. Does not appear like the pterygoplichthys that is commonly found in the lfs. Wondering if these are the offspring of the larger common hypostomus that used to be sold in the fish trade of old?

If a mating pair, they'll need to find or dig a cave to spawn in.

There have been videos (from Kerala) of large specimens being fished out of what can only be called a cesspool. I have personally collected large specimens from brackish water from the TN coast too. These fish seem to top even tilapia when it comes to tolerance of extreme water conditions!
Customer:Not much of a cheese shop really, is it?
Shopkeeper:Finest in the district, sir.
Customer:And what leads you to that conclusion?
Shopkeeper:Well, it's so clean.
Customer:It's certainly uncontaminated by cheese.
