Catfish From Way Back When
Hello. I'm trying to remember a catfish species I used to see from when I was a teenager back in the late 1960s through mid 1970s. It was well armored (not any sort of plecostomus), uniformly thick bodied, uniformly dark colored, with barbels similar to Cories. If I remember correctly, they were 3" - 4". I can't remember what their tail shape was.
Does this ring a bell for anyone. I don't remember seeing them in years and years, but I'd love to know what species they are.
