They are not reticulatus, wrong area and wrong size they are close though!! I will likely list them as cf. reticulatus until i get a proper id (which has not been achieveddespite international emails being sent and planet catfish thread)

EDIT: Planet catfish experts say they are indeed reticulatus This is good news!!!
