It looks like you had a (tentative?) identification for the purple ones as Centromochlus reticulatus - and a brief internet search suggests that might be true. I am an amateur at fish identification though ...
In any case, I hope the purple ones are C. reticulatus and I'm incredibly excited about next week. Hopefully they become available!
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!!!
